Sink Appoints New Chair to Florida Healthy Kids

August 14th, 2008 by flanews

A state program helping provide low cost insurance to kids is changing leadership. Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink chairs the Healthy Kids Board. Sink appointed House Representative Loranne Ausley as her replacement. Ausley will take over in November when she finishes her forth term as a state representative. Ausley said the board needs to focus on keeping federal dollars in the program, even as the state budget dwindles.

It is our goal, through the corporation and the various government programs, to make sure we reach out to all of those children and those families and make sure we can get them health insurance and quit frankly we can draw down federal dollars, at a very significantly strained budget time, Ausley said.

About 250,000 kids rely on Healthy Kids for doctors visits and dental work.
