Arizonan $12 over limit for heart surgery due to cuts

(Yuma Sun) A Yuma man in need of heart surgery doesn't know what to do next after losing his health insurance.
Steven Stephenson recently had to quit his job because of his health issues. Now, his Social Security payments are slightly too high — by $12 a month — for him to be eligible for the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), which is the state's Medicaid program.
“It's rough. I don't know what I'm going to do ... when I talked to my doctor he wants me to go for surgery in my heart. I don't know how I am going to be able to pay these bills.”
