Iowa Senate approves healthcare bill

Des Moines Register, March 20, 2009

More Iowa children would have health insurance under a healthcare bill the Iowa Senate approved with a 30-18 vote. The bill also would set up a commission to help Iowans find affordable health insurance, possibly by letting their employers join the state employees' health plan. Roughly 40,000 Iowa children are believed to lack health insurance. Most of them already qualify for the public Medicaid or Hawk-I programs, and the bill would increase efforts to identify them.
