Health aid programs targeted for budget cuts in Maryland county
Washington Post, March 27, 2008
A budget proposed in Montgomery County, MD, might force the county to slow its ambitious effort to offer medical care to adults who lack health insurance. Under the proposed budget, the county's program for adults who lack health insurance would be cut by $700,000. The reductions would not mean a decrease in services for current patients but would make it difficult to significantly increase the number of people treated, said the director of the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services.
