    The bill is an alternative to expanding the state's Medicaid enrollment as called for under the federal health-care law. The legislation would authorize Arkansas to accept the federal money intended to expand Medicaid but instead use it to purchase private insurance for low-income residents.
    An Arkansas proposal to use Medicaid money to buy private insurance for poor residents was passed by the House, a move that may help efforts for health- care overhaul in states with Republican-led legislatures

    gee i guess it's a great plan as long as insurance companies get
