Help! Need healthcare and don’t know where to start (AZ)

Hi Reddit. I’m a bit lost and desperate for some help.

My partner recently lost his job, which also means he does not have health insurance. We aren’t married so he isn’t eligible for my company sponsored healthcare plan. We are working on getting him a new job, but it’s also hard to get and hold a job when chronically ill. He has been having some pretty severe medical issues (mental & physical). We need to get him into a doctor or potentially hospital ASAP. But being in the US (AZ to be more specific) our healthcare system is… well, you know.

Essentially, I’m looking for guidance. I don’t really know where to start. Do we apply for Medicaid? AHCCCS? Disability? I’ve been reading so much online, but I’m struggling and just don’t know what to do.

I’m exhausted and we’re broke. I’m doing everything that I can to make ends meet and we need help.

Any guidance or advice is appreciated. Please don’t just say “get a job” because we are working on it.

ETA: He is 25 (26 in February). He has not had a consistent job for the better part of this year due to health issues. Mental health diagnosis: severe depression and anxiety, ADHD, and OCD. He hasn’t been diagnosed with anything for the physical issues he has been having.
