Lawmakers Need to Hear From You: Keep KidsCare in Place for AZ Working Families

The legislative session is in full swing, with important bills already being heard in committees. Just one critical measure being considered is HB 2127 to prevent another freeze of KidsCare, Arizona’s affordable health coverage for working families. The first hearing is scheduled for this Thursday, January 18th at 10:30 am.

Congress has not yet voted to provide continued federal funding, but we expect a vote in the next two months. Arizona lawmakers have a chance to be proactive so that a small drop in Congressional funding in the future would not trigger an automatic freeze on KidsCare – shutting children out of the check-ups, prescriptions, immunizations, and treatments they need to grow up healthy.
