Big insurance rate increase for Pennsylvania poor

New York Times, March 17, 2010

Facing a sharp rise in costs, Pennsylvania has almost doubled the monthly bill for a state health insurance program for poor people who do not qualify for Medicaid and are on a waiting list for a less costly option. On March 1, the cost of the plan rose to about $600 a month, up from $313 a month, for the roughly 2,400 state residents on the waiting list. Joel Ario, the state insurance commissioner, told the New York Times that while unavoidable, the price increase would probably make matters worse.
