Let childless get Medicaid, Iowa leader exhorts
Des Moines Register, August 28, 2008
It's time for poor people who are childless to be covered by Medicaid, said Gene Gessow, the director of the Iowa Medicaid program. There are low-income Iowans ages 19 to 65 who can't afford insurance and would benefit from this government health insurance, Gessow said. The federal government should lift restrictions and give states the opportunity to cover nondisabled single people or couples who have no children, he added.
