States to Get U.S. Bonuses for Covering Uninsured Children

Twenty-three states will share $296.5 million in U.S. payments for encouraging low-income families to enroll their children in public health programs.

Bonuses announced today reward states that streamline eligibility for Medicaid, the federal-state health program for the poor, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program. The effort is aimed at children younger than 19 from households with annual incomes of as much as $45,000 for a family of four, though some states have more generous criteria.
