States Receive Health Care Grants
New York Times

Hoping to alleviate concerns of states, the Obama administration on Tuesday said it would award nearly $220 million in new federal grants to states to set up exchanges where uninsured Americans may eventually be able to buy medical coverage as part of the federal health care law. The announcement comes less than a month after state insurance commissioners asked the Department of Health and Human Services for more flexibility in setting up the exchanges, telling the administration they might miss important deadlines established by the Obama administration on the road to providing health benefits.
