According to a January 16th article in The News & Observer,North Carolina could provide health insurance to nearly half the 296,000 children in the state who lack coverage under legislation that's on the fast track in Washington.
The Children's Health Insurance Program, which the U.S. House of Representatives broadened Wednesday, provides health care to children whose families make too much money to qualify for Medicaid insurance. If the Senate goes along as projected, President-elect Obama could sign the bill soon after taking office Tuesday. The measure includes an extra $32.3 billion to cover 4.1 million more American children who don't have health insurance.
