Health Overhaul-Arkansas Experiment-6 [Duplicate]

Lori Latch, 35, said she was looking forward to having health insurance for the first time since she was a teenager. She and her husband, who is self-employed, have racked up more than $5,000 in bills for emergency room visits. Arkansas' plan for expanding Medicaid by buying private insurance policies for the poor instead of adding them to the rolls was heralded as a model for convincing more Republican-leaning states to adopt a key part of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. But less than a year after its approval, the program that has extended health insurance to 83,000 people is on the brink of being abandoned. (AP Photo/Brian Chilson) (AP Photo/Brian Chilson)
