Georgia Shriners Hospitals help state with free pediatric care
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 19, 2008
The Shriners Hospitals for Children will offer free medical care for up to 500 working-class children from Georgia whose treatment would otherwise be funded through the state health insurance plan. The Shriner's charity offer is expected to save the state $1.3 million annually on the state insurance program called PeachCare, which covers children in families who do not qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford health insurance.
