Indiana expansion of SCHIP coverage takes effect
AP/Chicago Tribune, October 2, 2008
As many as 10,000 Indiana children have become eligible for the State Children's Health Insurance Program under a recently approved expansion, state officials announced. The expansion of eligibility to children up to age 19 in households earning up to 2 times the federal poverty level was approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in May. The new eligibility level is a sliding scale that includes families of two earning up to $35,000 per year and families of four earning up to $53,000.
