Arizona getting more money for low-income health plan

PHOENIX - Arizona will receive an additional $48 million for the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS.)

The extra funding is the result of a settlement in the pending tobacco enforcement case.

The $48 million is in addition to the $100 million per year that Arizona normally receives under the Tobacco Settlement.

The final installment of $12 million is expected to be received Tuesday, April 23.

This was all part of a 20-state settlement in which Arizona was a leading negotiator.
