Birmingham News, April 4, 2008
More than 5,000 uninsured Birmingham, AL, children will receive healthcare coverage under a partnership of the city, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and Children's Hospital. Under the plan, every child will be screened for major health problems. If they do not have insurance, they will either get help to qualify for existing programs or be enrolled in the alternative coverage provided by the Alabama Child Caring Foundation, said Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford.
