Arkansas receives $18.6 million for health planning

Posted By on Fri, Sep 28, 2012 at 7:09 AM

Noted: Arkansas's Insurance Department has received almost $18.6 million in federal money to build an affordable insurance exchange in the federal health care legislation. This is on top of more than $8 million received in two earlier grants.

Arkansas is opting for a partnership approach with the federal government since Republican legislators blocked any effort to have Arkansas be wholly in control of its own plan. It anticipates open enrollment by October 2013, a boon to hundreds of thousands of Arkansans, if something doesn't get in the way. Like terrible election outcomes that favor the every-man-for-himself approach to health care.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
