As many of you know, TakeAction Minnesota led the successful grassroots and legislative campaign in 2009 to expand public health coverage to thousands of Minnesota children. Good news: this important law went into effect this month!
As of July 1, Minnesota children no longer face an onerous four-month waiting period before receiving health coverage. Several other barriers were also removed that have stood in the way of children gaining public health coverage for years in Minnesota. Thousands of children will now receive access to the care they need in Minnesota thanks to this new law!
