AHCCCS Director: Working Poor Could Strain Health Care System

Arizona Capitol Times "The state is becoming the 'default health insurer' for low-income workers, says AHCCCS Director Tony Rodgers. 'If employers, especially small businesses, feel that they can’t afford health insurance premiums for those employees, and their incomes would qualify them for AHCCCS, then there’s no disincentive for them not to have their people covered by AHCCCS,' he said."
