A taxpayer-financed study conducted when Gov. Rod Blagojevich was announcing his plan to guarantee health insurance for every child in Illinois shows the number of uninsured children could be far fewer than he estimated.
Blagojevich said there were 253,000 Illinois children without insurance. But the study by a New York polling firm, released to The Associated Press this week, put the figure as low as 124,321 and as high as 246,954.

Hat-Tip to Rich Miller for this from the Bellville News Democrat. I'm betting the number covered and with claims paid gets beyond 10,000.
