MN Democrats Push Health Insurance For All Children
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Two Minneapolis Democrats are pushing a plan to open state health care programs to all uninsured children. The bill from Rep. Paul Thissen and Sen. Linda Berglin would eliminate waiting periods for children to enroll in the MinnesotaCare health program for the working poor. It would increase government efforts to sign children up. The legislation would also eliminate premiums for children under a poverty limit. Children whose parents make more money but can't afford insurance would be eligible for MinnesotaCare, too. There's no word yet on how much the plan would cost. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
