AZ hospital association drops suit over care reimbursement
The Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association says it is dropping a lawsuit against the state over healthcare reimbursement rates for the state's poorest residents. The association was upset about two separate 5 percent cuts last year in the amount hospitals get paid for treating low income patients on Medicaid, known as AHCCCS in Arizona. The association wanted to prevent one of those 5 percent cuts, but a court denied that request, prompting the association to drop the suit.
