Providing care for uninsured more daunting than expected in MD county

Washington Post, February 19, 2008
Four years ago, officials in Montgomery County, MD, launched Montgomery Cares, a program to care for the uninsured. Through the program, officials pledged to cover half of the county's estimated 80,000 uninsured residents by 2010. But two years from the deadline, officials say they won't come close to meeting their goal despite the opening of three new clinics and a 58 percent increase in the number of people receiving care.
