Hennepin County, MN, rejects health plan

Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 28, 2010

A compromise plan to provide healthcare for thousands of the Minnesota's poorest residents appeared to be unraveling after Hennepin County affirmed its decision not to participate. The health program for more than 35,000 people, brokered last month by legislators and Gov. Tim Pawlenty, is supposed to take effect June 1. But by late Tuesday, it appeared that as many as 16 of the 17 hospitals that were to participate may refuse, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
