Former OSPB chief to head up AHCCCS

Gov. Jan Brewer replaced one of the last major agency heads left over from the Napolitano era, naming former OSPB chief Thomas Betlach as director of the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System.

Betlach had served as deputy director of the agency since 2002. He replaces Anthony Rodgers, who was appointed to the position in 2003 by then-Gov. Janet Napolitano.

“With over 18 years in service to the state of Arizona, Tom brings a wealth of financial and executive level managerial experience that will be a tremendous asset in these challenging economic times,” Brewer stated in a Nov. 3 media release

In 1997, Gov. Jane Hull appointed Betlach director of the Governor’s Office of Strategic Planning and Budgeting. Betlach also served as budget director for the Arizona Department of Transportation, and became the first acting director of the School Facilities Board in 1998
