Texas enrollment in Children's Health Insurance program surges 7 percent
Dallas Morning News, March 12, 2008
Texas health insurance rolls for children of the working poor swelled by about 7 percent in the past month, but much of the gain was offset by having fewer children on Medicaid. Enrollment in the Children's Health Insurance Program increased by some 24,000 youngsters to about 382,000 in that time. This marks the highest enrollment level in three years, the state reported.
