Washington, DC, plan could aid uninsured
Washington Post, March 31, 2008
A Washington, DC, City Council member will propose a sweeping plan to mandate healthcare coverage for all District residents by offering a city-subsidized program for the uninsured. The plan is aimed at an estimated 25,000 uninsured residents who are not eligible for Medicaid programs or the city's Health Care Alliance. If approved, residents would pay monthly premiums of between $20 and $100, depending on their gross income.
