Feds nix hope for additional AHCCCS funding (access required)

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Monday informed states they will not get enhanced funding for partial Medicaid expansion. States that expand coverage to include people earning up to 133 percent of the federal poverty limit – which totals about $14,856 for an individual – will get a substantial increase in federal matching funds.
