Analysis by a University of Arizona public health policy professor shows health care reforms proposed by Congressional Republicans would result in 400,000 Arizonans losing their health insurance over the next decade. Dr. Dan Derksen, professor of public health policy and management at the UA Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and director of the Arizona Center for Rural Health, said the result of cuts from either the House of Representatives American Health Care Act or the Senate's Better Care Reconcilliation Act would roll back gains made in insuring Arizonans under the Affordable Care Act.
