After faciing criticism for proposing to eliminate a state healthcare program for the indigent, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's administration has decided to transfer most of those recipients to a subsidized insurance plan for the working poor. The General Assistance Medicare Program program for adults making less than $7,800 a year is scheduled to go away March 1, potentially leaving some 36,000 recipients without regular access to medical care. Now some 28,000 will be automatically enrolled in MinnesotaCare, a subsidized health insurance plan. The remainder are those whose GAMC eligibility is running out or who already are applying for MinnesotaCare.
