Urgent: Take action to protect Arizona’s hospitals and healthcare providers
The Arizona legislature will soon vote on a bill aimed at ensuring Arizonans’ access to care by increasing the financial stability of hospitals and healthcare providers. This legislation is critical for your local healthcare community.
HB2668 and SB1247 will work to fix a major problem facing Arizona’s hospitals and healthcare providers: chronic underpayment by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS). Hospitals are paid approximately 70 cents for every $1 of cost and struggle to continue providing care to you and your friends, family and neighbors.
This bill will not impact the state’s general fund, nor will costs be passed on to patients.
Contact your legislators today and tell them to support this critical legislation.
