Colorado healthcare plan gains
Denver Post, March 25, 2009
A Colorado bill has won initial House approval to expand health coverage by imposing a fee on hospitals. House Bill 1293 would generate an estimated $600 million. That money would draw an equal amount in federal matching funds, and the $1.2 billion total could be used to expand coverage for Medicaid, the state's Child Health Plan Plus, and indigent care programs to at least 100,000 more Coloradans.
