Feds send money to help insure Florida children

Florida advocates working to enroll eligible kids in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program got a major boost from the federal government Monday.

The University of South Florida and the Putnam County School District in northeast Florida both received $1 million grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to enroll uninsured children in government-subsidized health coverage. USF works with several Southwest Florida insurance enrollment groups, including the Health Planning Council of Southwest Florida, Inc., which regularly holds outreach events for uninsured children and adults.
