Iowa to Move forward with Low Income Health Care

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad says Iowa residents will be able to sign up for a new low-income health care program starting Tuesday, even though federal authorities have yet to approve the plan.

Branstad says Monday that enrollment will start as planned. The state has applied for a waiver enabling the state to receive more federal Medicaid money for the proposed Iowa Health and Wellness Plan, a new health insurance program.

So far the waiver has not been granted and a sticking point is the use of small premiums for some plan participants.

Under the proposal, the state would take federal funding to create a new health plan for some poor residents and to pay the premiums for other low-income Iowans to get private insurance on the new health care exchanges.
