Health Expansion Deal Reached

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
   Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad says he has reached a deal with federal authorities to expand low income health care.
   Branstad announced Thursday that he had an agreement with officials from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Iowa sought a waiver enabling the state to receive more federal Medicaid money for the proposed Iowa Health and Wellness Plan.
   State officials said they had reached a compromise on one sticking point in the negotiations. The state wanted to charge small monthly premiums to some plan participants.
   Initially, federal authorities said the state could only charge those with incomes over 100 percent of the federal poverty line.  But under the compromise, the state could charge those with lower incomes, but couldn't deny benefits for not paying.
