KGUN-9 TV reports that TMC helps, reminds people to re-enroll in AHCCCS:
More than a 100,000 Arizonans are expected to lose their Medicaid coverage this year, after lawmakers to implemented an enrollment freeze on the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), the state’s Medicaid program, to help balance the budget.
Childless adults who are below the poverty level and currently on AHCCCS may renew their coverage, but the state will not accept new applications or provide coverage for those who forget to reenroll.
Tucson Medical Center (TMC) is hoping to stem the tide of people allowing a lapse in coverage with a workshop, by reminding them to reapply and providing experts to guide them through the often confusing process.
TMC hosts another workshop to help guide people through the redetermination paperwork, Saturday, Aug. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pima Conference near the TMC Southeast Entrance. No appointment is needed.
