Arizona Health Insurance Dropping Children From KidsCare

ARIZONA health insurance : Governor Jan Brewer has presented a proposed budget that would decrease spending by reducing the number of Medicaid recipients by 300,000 and by dropping 47,000 children from the Arizona health insurance KidsCare program. Under the proposal, the state would also stop providing mental health benefits other than medications for people who do not qualify for Medicaid. Despite the focus on fiscal issues, the legislature has begun introducing bills affecting Arizona health insurance. Early bills include: PBM regulation; expanding chiropractors’ scope of practice; allowing groups of one in the small group market, and oral chemotherapy parity.
