A new report published by State Coverage Initiatives shows that at least 13 states were able to implement major health reforms in 2006, including comprehensive healthcare reform, public private partnerships and initiatives to cover all children. States have been fertile testing grounds for new reforms and have proven that bipartisan compromise is possible, State Coverage Initiatives Acting Director Enrique Martinez-Vidal said in a statement, adding that, however, they dont take the place of a national solution. State Coverage Initiatives is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that is administered by Academy Health. -- by Matthew DoBias
