Court gives San Francisco health plan a boost
San Francisco Chronicle, January 4, 2008
A federal appeals court boosted San Francisco's hopes of reviving its plan to extend health coverage to all uninsured residents. The city's program provides care at a network of hospitals and clinics for uninsured adults who are not covered by a state program for the poor or Medicare for the elderly. The annual cost is to be paid from state and local taxes, patient payments and contributions by employers who don't offer insurance.
