Arizona governor seeks ban on new Medicaid rules
Reuters/Yahoo News, February 27, 2008
Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano joined other state governors in lobbying for U.S. Congress to place a moratorium on implementing proposed Medicaid regulations that will increase costs for states. The new regulations, issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, would ban the use of federal Medicaid money to pay for doctor training, eliminate some funds for disability programs, and limit Medicaid payments to hospitals and nursing homes run by state governments.
