Families urge expansion of Denali KidCare

Posted: Wednesday, September 30, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A dozen families crowded into an Anchorage church Monday night to press state lawmakers and the commissioner of Alaska Health and Social Services to expand Denali KidCare.

Those in attendance say they and many other families can't afford traditional coverage and make too much to qualify for Denali KidCare - the Medicaid program run by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.

Health Commissioner Bill Hogan told those at the meeting that the Parnell Administration supports expanding eligibility limits.
