Iowa bill advances requiring kids’ health coverage
Des Moines Register, February 29, 2008
A plan for getting almost all Iowa children health insurance has moved a step closer to reality. Under the plan, about 36,000 children would qualify for free or subsidized health insurance, and the parents of another 12,000 would have to pay for the insurance on their own. Lawmakers removed a proposed requirement that all Iowa adults have health insurance as well.
