Medicaid is health overhaul’s early success story

This photo taken Jan. 3, 2013 shows Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, right, with Sue Birch, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, center, speaking with an attendee of a news conference where Hickenlooper announced a plan to expand Medicaid coverage for adults as called for by President Barack Obama's federal health care law, at the state Capitol in Denver. The underdog of government health care programs is emerging as the rare early success story of President Barack Obama's technologically challenged health overhaul. A yearslong effort to reach eligible residents apparently succeeded in generating the increased demand. The state has installed self-service kiosks in community clinics, hospitals and libraries to sign people up. And a year ago, nurses statewide agreed to help by promoting Medicaid to low-income uninsured patients. "We said to our nurses: 'OK, you're our bounty hunters. You go find our patients,'" Birch said.
