Summer always seems to go by so quickly. Before we know it, the beginning of the school year is here and that’s why Arizonans should take steps today to make sure their families have health coverage heading into the school year.
Political signs lining the streets declare the names and goals of candidates for several offices in the state of Arizona but across the East Valley and Ahwatukee Foothills, there are also signs calling some incumbent Republican legislators “liberal.”
Hospice of the Valley was awarded a $200,000 grant this month from BHHS Legacy Foundation to develop and evaluate a program designed to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their family caregivers.
Each year, the Arizona Medical Association (ArMA) recognizes special individuals or groups who have contributed to the success of medical care in Arizona. Recipients were recognized in an awards ceremony during the ArMA President’s Banquet at the Phoenix Country Club on May 30, which featured Gov. Jan Brewer as an award recipient and the keynote speaker. Brewer’s keynote speech provided an overview of the work to restore and expand the Arizona Medicaid program, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).
In a ruling potentially affecting thousands of Arizonans, a federal appeals court on Tuesday voided a cost-saving bid by the state's Medicaid program to deny incontinence briefs to some adults who need them.
In a major victory for the legislative minority, the state Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that lawmakers on the losing end of last year's Medicaid expansion have a constitutional right to challenge the law and the levy it imposes.
Republican lawmakers asked the state Court of Appeals Wednesday to give them a chance to prove that hundreds of millions of dollars being used to support an expanded Medicaid program are being collected illegally.
Over the past few months, in Arizona, there have been multiple changes affecting health care coverage for children in Arizona. In October, a bipartisan bill passed which increased Medicaid expansion to 138 percent of the Federal Poverty Level and many more Arizona families qualified for Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).
Chandler Regional Medical Center will be providing free vaccine clinics in Ahwatukee on Tuesday to children six weeks to 19 years old with no insurance, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) insurance, Indian Health Services, and private insurance that does not cover one or more of the required or recommended vaccines.
A number of our East Valley legislators took a positive stand during the recent legislative session to support the governor’s Medicaid Restoration Plan. This will help tens of thousands of working Arizonans gain affordable health care insurance and help stabilize the health care sector in this state.
