Although tourists find this state to be enjoyable, many full-time Arizona residents suffer when it comes to health insurance. It isn't exactly the fault of the state but of an ongoing trend that is raising health care costs around the country. With 17% of Arizona residents currently uninsured, it is obvious that something needs to be done to increase consumer access to health insurance.
While State legislators are slowly changing things for the better, there are many things the Arizona resident will want to consider before purchasing individual or family insurance:
Lower income families in Arizona will find the Public Health Department to be the best place to search for insurance opportunities. The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) offers Medicaid coverage to those who make under the poverty limit, while KidsCare, Arizona's S-CHIP offering, provides children of these families with comprehensive medical coverage. SOBRA is a health insurance offering that provides children and pregnant women with coverage.
For those whose income puts them out of reach of state aid, they still have plenty of health insurance options. Consumers can apply for coverage through their association with a hobby group or union, or they may be able to enroll in a discount or individual plan. Finally, some clinics work on a sliding fee schedule and will only charge what a consumer can pay.
