Florida governor proposes outreach health program for poor uninsured
Miami Herald, February 1, 2008
Under a proposal from Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, health or social workers would visit some of the state's poorest neighborhoods looking for uninsured people to help them get medical attention or get enrolled in government healthcare programs. The $64 million pilot proposal would be aimed at neighborhoods in 14 counties with a high number of uninsured and where officials say the use of hospital emergency rooms for primary healthcare is particularly high.
