Universal Health Care

I do not understand why Secretary of Health and Human Services, JudyAnn Bigby, is so upset about changes in federal S-CHIP regulations (A fair shot at healthcare, Boston Globe, September 7, 2007, A19).

I thought that everyone in Massachusetts now had health insurance under the new law. I assumed that this included all children. In such a case, surely S-CHIP becomes irrelevant.

What is it that I am not understanding about the Massachusetts universal coverage plan?
