Groups urge easier enrollment after expansion of Texas health insurance for kids
Some say the recent expansion of the Children's Health Insurance Program in Texas means working-class families in Dallas-Fort Worth and the state can breathe easier now. But critics say the current system makes it anything but easy to enroll. Julia Easley, director of advocacy for Children's Medical Center Dallas, says the current eligibility system has a six-month renewal cycle that not only overburdens the state offices that process the applications, but also frustrates parents who qualify.
