New Jersey finalizes health plan to cover uninsured children
New York Times, December 20, 2007
New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine announced that the state has finalized an agreement with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield allowing working- and middle-class families to obtain health insurance for children at drastically reduced rates. Other states are likely to study New Jersey's program carefully because of the involvement of a private insurance company and the state's reputation for trying to expand healthcare coverage.
