Georgia Officials: PeachCare, Medicaid services stay
Georgia health officials have announced a plan to preserve Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids for the next two years. About 1.4 million Georgians participate in Medicaid, the government insurance program for the poor, and in PeachCare, the program for children of needy families that earn too much to qualify for Medicaid. The programs are funded by state and federal sources. Health advocates said keeping the programs intact is even more important in these tough economic times when more people might need public assistance.
