How to get the best healthcare coverage in Arizona
The Arizona Republic is reporting that a group of doctors is asking the Arizona Supreme Court to reconsider a ruling that denied them access to the state’s Medicaid insurance program.
The doctors are represented by the Arizona Hospital Association and say the lawsuit is based on the fact that the state failed to provide them with enough information about their healthcare needs.
The AMA’s lawsuit was filed against Arizona Health Care System in October 2016, and it was later consolidated with the state attorney general’s office.
The lawsuit is asking that the court overturn the ruling, and the AMA also filed an amicus brief supporting the state in the case.
The state attorney generals office declined to comment on the lawsuit.
“The AMA is asking for the court to reconsider its refusal to provide health care services to the physicians because of its failure to provide accurate information about the medical needs of the physicians,” AMA attorney Scott Lively said in a statement.
“The lawsuit seeks to provide the AMA with a remedy for its failure in the conduct of its duties under state law.
It also seeks a court order directing the AMA to provide timely, accurate, and complete information to the doctors and their patients, and to ensure that they receive the best possible healthcare coverage.”
The Arizona Republic reports that the AMA has filed a similar lawsuit in New Mexico and Arizona, arguing that the law is in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
