Report Shows American Health Care Act Could Hurt Rural Arizona

Republicans have to work quickly if they hope to pass their replacement for the Affordable Care Act by the end summer.

The U.S. House has passed its version — the American Health Care Act — last month and now the Senate is expected to push its own version.

A concern for many in the health-care debate is Medicaid, which would be scaled back significantly under the House plan.

And a new report shows that could particularly hurt rural Arizona. KJZZ’s Will Stone covers health care and joins me to explain.
