Alaska to get $2.6 million health care bonus

Posted: December 31, 2013 - 2:16pm

ANCHORAGE — Alaska is in line for a $2.6 million federal bonus for increasing the number of children enrolled in its health insurance program.

Alaska has been meeting federal requirements for the fifth year running that are aimed at improving access to Medicaid for eligible families.

KTUU reported the state Department Of Health and Social Services learned Monday it will be receiving the additional funding as part of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act.

To receive the bonus, the state was required to demonstrate it was boosting enrollment in Denali Kid Care, the state’s insurance program for low income families.

The state also had to streamline the process for enrollment in the program.

Alaska is among 23 states receiving the federal bonus.
