New Healthcare Law Includes Men Without Children

  • AHCCCS has received a few inquiries related to incorrect information in the community. To clarify: HEA IS accepting childless adult (and expansion group) applications. These applications WILL transfer to HEAplus after the system goes live. You will NOT have to reapply for childless adults or expansion groups. Childless adults are NOT getting denied today for coverage in January. They may receive a notice letting them know they are not eligible for coverage from October through December, but the notice also lets them know we will process their application under the new rules for coverage that would start in January.”

“First, every addictive act is preceded by a feeling of helplessness or powerlessness (an overwhelming of the capacity to manage without feeling emotionally flooded). Addictive behavior functions to repair this underlying feeling of helplessness. It is able to do this because taking the addictive action (or even deciding to take this action) creates a sense of being empowered, of regaining control over one’s emotional experience and one’s life. This reversal of helplessness may be described as the psychological purpose of addiction.”
