Republican leaders and Gov. Doug Ducey agreed to a $9.1 billion budget that would make severe cuts to the state's Medicaid spending, triggering even larger cuts from federal programs that offer matching funds. The state is poised to cut $127 million from its budget over the coming two years, which would mean the loss of another $508 million in funds from the federal government for AHCCCS.
