State's uninsured about to get new options

Charlotte Observer, June 30, 2010

North Carolina could begin accepting applications Thursday for a new federal insurance pool that will allow chronically uninsured patients with pre-existing conditions to get coverage for a fraction of what they would pay a private insurer. The program, the first major initiative enacted under the new health care law, will be offered side by side with an existing state high-risk insurance pool that targets people who have suddenly lost coverage because of job loss or because they’ve been turned down by private insurance companies.
