Georgia's PeachCare Program crisis continues. The program, which provides insurance to children of low-income families, put a freeze on new enrollment March 11, causing an unexpected surge in new enrollment.

Now the state has taken $8 million from other programs to cover the increase of participants.

Officials at the Governor's Office tell WCTV they anticipate the Federal Government to pay back the state, but do not know when.

As of right now the PeachCare Program says it has enough money to cover all the children enrolled.
