Researchers, John Holahan, Len Nichols, and Linda Blumberg outline a new proposal to cover the uninsured that would extend the subsidized coverage that is available under the State Children's Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP) to all lower-income people. This proposal designed to expand health insurance coverage was written as a component of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded project which was directed by The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI). Nine other proposals were also written by other authors under the auspices of this project, "Covering America: Real Remedies for the Uninsured." All 10 proposals can be accessed through the ESRI web-site
