Ohio governor trying to insure more children
Cleveland Plain Dealer, April 22, 2008
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland hopes to add nearly 21,000 uninsured children onto Medicaid, a step in the effort to insure an additional half-million more residents by 2011. Two other newly established state programs may add 5,000 children as well. A governor's panel is expected to soon recommend ways to get coverage for half-a-million Ohioans and how to make health insurance more affordable for small businesses.
