Minnesota governor unveils plan to revamp healthcare system in the state
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has announced a major healthcare rollout that he said puts Minnesota in the forefront of consumer-friendly medicine. Pawlenty said his goal is to give all Minnesotans access to online personal health portfolios by 2011. The plan would also establish health-reimbursement accounts for state employees that would allow them to load the money on a debit card; they could use it to tap pre-tax money put away for out-of-pocket expenses without collecting receipts and submitting claims.
