Arizona court to hear challenge to Medicaid cut

An appeals court on Wednesday hears arguments in a challenge to parts of Arizona’s scaling back of its Medicaid program to help balance the state budget.

A Court of Appeals panel in Phoenix is reviewing a trial judge’s ruling in the case.

It involves a challenge that argues that parts of the reductions are unconstitutional on grounds that they violate a voter-approved law that expanded Medicaid eligibility.

The trial judge ruled that the Legislature can legally reduce enrollment.
