Feds approve Indiana plan to expand SCHIP coverage
AP/Chicago Tribune, May 12, 2008
An expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program that legislators approved last year has won federal approval, making low-cost coverage available to more kids in moderate-income Indiana households. The expansion will bring more than 5,000 children into Indiana's SCHIP program this year and as many as 10,000 eventually. In Indiana, SCHIP is combined with Medicaid to create the Hoosier Healthwise insurance plan for children.
