More Federal Health Funds Coming to Alaska

Alaska is among nine states being rewarded by the federal government for enrolling more uninsured children in Medicaid. Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says Alaska is receiving a $789,000 bonus for boosting health insurance coverage for children. The payouts were part of the Children’s Health Insurance Program reauthorization signed into law in February by President Barack Obama.
