Tuesday is presidential primary day in Arizona, and while the candidates may all be elsewhere, The Grand Canyon State has its share of healthcare logjams. Indeed, last year the state legislature reduced the budget for the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment Systems (AHCCCS) by $500 million, which subsequently meant foregoing nearly $1 billion in Medicaid matches, such that the total hit was $1.5 billion. And then there are "the 204 people" – as in Proposition 204. That essentially cuts childless adults who previously qualified for Medicaid.
