Illinois governor’s healthcare program not yet up

AP/Chicago Tribune, September 9, 2008
A year after Gov. Rod Blagojevich outlined his "All Kids Bridge" program to expand the state's health insurance coverage for sick or injured young adults, it still doesn't exist. When he announced the program last August, Blagojevich said he was addressing a problem with the state's All Kids program, which offers health medical benefits for young people with serious medical conditions such as organ transplants and diabetes. Susan Hofer, a spokeswoman for the Division of Insurance said the state remains "entirely committed to All Kids Bridge," but added that the administration is still working with the (insurance) board to finalize program details.
