Yes, under Arizona law a hernia is presumed to NOT be covered by workers' comp unless certain very specific circumstances exist, and even then, benefits are limited to 2 months' of compensation. If you Google "arizona revised statutes hernia Title 23" you get to the statute, ARS 23-1043, which is fairly self-explanatory. You can also find information about it at the Industrial Commission of Arizona website.
