Be Heard Now on Proposed Changes to AHCCCS. Flagstaff meeting set for Aug. 21

| August 17, 2015

By Children’s Action Alliance

You have an opportunity to be heard on an issue of importance to Arizona’s children:  A waiver request that would have a major impact on how health services are delivered to Arizona’s low income families.

In the coming weeks, there are hearings on Governor Ducey’s recently proposed plans to change the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), where you can learn more, ask questions and express your concerns.

The governor’s Modernizing Arizona Medicaid plan, proposes to put time limitations on coverage and impose co-pays and other requirements on AHCCCS recipients. A brief summary of the AHCCCS CARE program is available here.
