State offers health coverage to riskiest patients
North Carolina has begun offering a health insurance program to the state's riskiest patients, and officials are looking to attract more. The new program targets those with high-risk health conditions, such as multiple sclerosis or hemophilia, and is meant for people who don't have employer coverage and can't get private insurance without paying an exorbitant amount. Officials say as many as 180,000 people are eligible in the state.
