Higher Unemployment Levels Lead to Increased AHCCCS Enrollment

As of December 1st 2010, there were 1,347,614 Arizona residents enrolled in AHCCCS programs. While this is a decrease of 19,533 (or -1.4%) over a year ago, it is still a 24.8% increase since the beginning of the economic downturn in December 2007. Total AHCCCS enrollment has been relatively stable for the past few months. The reasons for this are unclear since we know that economic conditions are still poor and many are experiencing hardship.
