Massachusetts devises new health coverage for legal immigrants

Boston Globe, September 1, 2009

Using $40 million in emergency money designated by the Legislature, Patrick's health and insurance czars reached an agreement with CeltiCare Health Plan of Massachusetts, a subsidiary of Missouri-based Centene Corp., to provide basic medical care for the immigrants through its healthcare network.
