Arizona Health Insurance Financial Crisis

Governor Jan Brewer is facing almost the worst financial crisis in Arizona history. In looking to reduce budget spending for 2011 the Arizona health insurance program for kids ( Kids Care ) might be affected. The children’s Arizona health insurance program has currently stopped enrollment and if eliminated will reduce the budget by about $23 million.

In addition, Kids Care Arizona health insurance covers 47,000 children. The parents of these children do not qualify for the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System ( AHCCCS ). The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System is also being reduced by eliminating over 300,000 current members.
