Last Thursday, the Arizona Legislature concluded its business in the special session and passed the Governor’s Medicaid Restoration plan. On Monday, June 17th Governor Brewer signed this legislation into law. This law will restore coverage to thousands of childless adults who are eligible for AHCCCS under Prop. 204, an Arizona voter mandate. The Governor’s plan will also include adults from 100-133% of the federal poverty level.

Both the restoration of Prop. 204 and the new coverage will be effective January 1, 2014. AHCCCS will provide additional information on the implementation of Governor Brewer’s plan through its website and through Community Forums, both of which are currently under development.
