Kentucky to push to get more children health coverage
Louisville Courier-Journal, September 3, 2008
Kentucky plans to step up efforts to get children from low-income families with no health insurance on a state plan, Gov. Steve Beshear has announced. Beshear said that as many as 90,000 children in Kentucky have no health insurance although as many as 65,000 of those may qualify for the Kentucky Children's Health Insurance Program. Beshear said his administration will make it easier to apply for KCHIP, in part by eliminating the requirement that parents come to a state social service office to apply in person.
