reminder note

Forgot your SPN?

The Site Participant Number (SPN) is a two or three-digit unique identifier assigned to every TI participating site in the program. You will need to reference this number throughout the program so, please keep it handy.

If you cannot locate your SPN(s), please notify us at and we will send you the information.
SPN's are simply a number assigned to TI site applications as a mechanism for AHCCCS to track TI participating sites in our records. The SPN identifier is only for the Targeted Investments providers.

Relocated your TI site, opted out  or change of ownership/provider type?

If your organization anticipates relocating, merging, or closing a TI Participating site(s) or merging with other organizations throughout the duration of the program, please do the following:

1) Notify AHCCCS Provider Registration and take the necessary steps outlined by Provider Registration.

2) Notify the TI Team at  of the change or when the change will occur.

If you plan to drop your organization, or a site(s) from the TI Program, we would greatly appreciate you notifying us at:

Implementing the Patient Notification Process and the Right to Opt Out

1. Distribute the Notice of Health Information Practices (Notice) to patients. Obtain a signature from each patient acknowledging receipt of the Notice. This signature can be obtained on any form, including the healthcare provider's HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices or conditions of admission or treatment form. The form must reference the healthcare provider's participation in the HIE and must state that the patient has received, read and understands the Notice. 

2. Provide the Opt Out Form to any patient who wants to opt out or the Opt Back In Form to change a previous opt out decision. A patient can opt out or opt back in at any time.
3. Provide the Health Information Request Form to any patient who wants to request a copy of his or her health information that is available through the HIE or who wants a list of persons who have accessed his or her health information through the HIE in the last three years.
If a patient opts out of making some or all of his or her health information accessible through the HIE, then no one will have access to that information through the HIE, even in an emergency.

Please contact your Health Current account manager for more information in this critical next step in the process to receive ADT Alerts.
