The Clarion-Ledger, 9/17/7

Parents would pay monthly premiums and co-payments, and the state would kick in money to cover uninsured Mississippi children, according to a proposal by Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Arthur Eaves Jr.

Eaves provided details of his plan, Kid Care, to The Clarion-Ledger last week. Modeled after an Illinois program, it seeks to offer affordable coverage for children whose families earn too much to qualify for state and federal help but not enough to afford private insurance.
