CHILDREN'S HEALTH
(2007-07-20)
(wgvu) - A THE U-S SENATE IS CONSIDERING A BILL THAT
WOULD MAKE 90-THOUSAND MORE MICHIGAN CHILDREN WITHOUT HEALTH
INSURANCE ELIGIBLE FOR COVERAGE.
MICHIGAN DEMOCRAT DEBBIE STABENOW SAYS THE STATE STANDS TO
RECEIVE ABOUT $210 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR, AN INCREASE OF ABOUT $60 MILLION DOLLARS.
THE MONEY WOULD GO TO EXPAND THE STATE'S CHILDREN'S HEALTH CARE
PROGRAM KNOWN AS MI-CHILD.
THE SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE APPROVED THE AID, WHICH IS PART OF
A FEDERAL PROGRAM DESIGNED TO PROVIDE HEALTH COVERAGE FOR CHILDREN
OF THE WORKING POOR.
THE FULL SENATE MAY TAKE IT UP NEXT WEEK.
