Small Arizona Towns Face Big Health Care Challenges
This week’s ruling by a Maricopa County Superior Court judge that the assessment used to pay for part of Arizona’s Medicaid expansion is constitutional has set the stage for an appeal to the state Court of Appeals.
It also brought at least temporary sighs of relief from expansion supporters, including Dan Derksen. He’s director of the Center for Rural Health at the University of Arizona. Derksen said small towns face big health care challenges.
