A Spokane-based group has started a teen outreach program to provide Medicaid to the uninsured.
Community-Minded Enterprises intends to sign up more than 14,000 youths between 13 and 18 years old, and re-enroll 10,000 others, in Apple Health For Kids, the state's free or low-cost Medicaid program.
As many as 40,000 teens are eligible for the insurance but don't have it, according to Community-Minded Enterprises.
The organization will use social media and work with agencies around the state to find uninsured teens.
