Illinois' All Kids health program not reaching everyone eligible
All Kids is Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's signature healthcare program, launched in July 2006, and it gained enormous attention nationally as the first state plan to offer the promise of universal healthcare coverage for children. A state official said that about 270,000 children have enrolled in All Kids since it began 2-1/2 years ago, but a recent Families USA report indicates that hundreds of thousands of children in the state remain without medical coverage.
