Flap on children's coverage settled

Wall Street Journal, March 30, 2010

Insurers announced they would comply with regulations the government issued requiring them to cover children with pre-existing conditions, after a dispute with lawmakers over interpretation of the new healthcare legislation. The Obama administration has made near-immediate coverage for sick children a priority in its healthcare overhaul. But shortly after the bill's passage, insurers contended that the law didn't require them to accept sick children until 2014. America's Health Insurance Plans said it would comply with the broader interpretation after lawmakers expressed outrage over its narrower reading, the Wall Street Journal reports.
