Gubernatorial candidate in Indiana rolls out healthcare plan

Indianapolis Star, April 9, 2008

Under a proposal from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Schellinger, Indiana would provide incentives for small businesses to provide health coverage and increase preventive screenings at schools. Schellinger added that he would push for federal expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program, and seek ways to get more eligible Indiana children enrolled in the effort. In Indiana, SCHIP helps pay for Hoosier Healthwise, which as of 2007 enrolled about 75,000 Indiana children from families earning up to twice the federal poverty level.
