Young adults
with health
coverage up

The number of young
adults with health insurance
increased by almost a million in
the past year.
Approximately 900,000
people under age 26 became
insured between January 2010
and March 2011, according to
data released last week by the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention. The increase,
which outpaced last year's
U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services projections,
lowered the rate of uninsured
18-to-25 year olds from 28 per-
centinthethird quarter of2010
to 24.2 percent in the second
quarter of 2011.
Last week, members of the
Obama administration attrib-
uted the increase to a provision

in the Affordable Care Act that
allows young adults to remain
on their families' insurance
policies as dependantsuntil age
26 This provision went into
effect on Sept.23, 2010.
While the suggestion that
the Affordable Care Act direct-
ly caused the rise in the number
of insured young adults has not
been proven, Kathleen Sebe-
lius, secretary of the Depart-
ment of Health and Human
Services, said the U.S. Census
Bureau's data is evidence that
the legislation is working.
"The Affordable Care Act
has made the health care sys-
tem better for millions of
Americans," Sebelius said.
"This law is helping to give
hardworking families the
security they deserve and stop
insurance company abuses,
hold down insurance premi-
ums and strengthen Medicare."
University professors point-
ed to the reduced number of
uninsured Americans in all
other age groups and the cor-
responding time of the enact-
ment of the health care law as

UMHS deal to save
county $1.5 million
in three years

Due to a shortage of patholo-
gists in Detroit, the University
has stepped in to help balance

Wayne County morgue's bur-
geoning caseload.
The University of Michigan
Health System and the Wayne
County Medical Examiner's
Office finalized a three-year
partnership recently making
WCMEO's forensic patholo-
gists - the doctors who conduct
autopsies - employees of the
Wayne County, which has

suffered budget cuts in recent
years, required more patholo-
gists to conduct about 2,500
autopsies that come through
the morgue annually, according
to WCMEO spokesman Dennis
Niemiec.,The WCMEO current-
ly has five forensic pathologists,
but the office needs a total of
eight doctors, according to Nie-
"It was becoming difficult to

recruit them because nationally
there's a shortage of forensic
pathologists," he said.
However, UMHS can assist
in the recruitment trdcess. The
University has the ability to
draw top-level candidates with
name recognition and higher
salaries, Niemiec sal. He added
that the University can pay
pathologists up to $ 60,000 a

airport shuttle
service to DTW

The Ann Arbor Transit
Authority's constituents might

and Ypsilanti in upcoming

AATA spokeswoman Mary
Stasiak said the transit author-
ity is responding to people's
needs by proposing to expand
its services in the next few
years. In addition to extending
some of its current services
between the two cities, AATA
is also proposing several new
services including a shuttle to
the Detroit Metro Airport.
Due to a long-time demand,
the AATA has proposed
expanding its bus service
along Washtenaw Avenue,
otherwise known as Route 4,
Stasiak said.

AATA will also be expand-
ing Night Ride, a late-night
shared taxi service that cur-
rently operates within Ann
Arbor. With the changes, the
service would expand to areas
in Ann Arbor Township and
Ypsilanti. While AATA consid-
ers its services at peak com-
muting hours to be sufficient,
the expansion of Night Ride
was prompted by residents'
varying schedules, according
to Stasiak.
"There's still a lot of people
who have different schedules

For the Daily
Ann Arbor's 62-year-old
grocery store, White Market,
faces an uncertain future since

the building that has served
