Sharon Ward Serves as Guest Speaker for PHAN's Call on the Governor's Budget

Sharon Ward, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center, served as tonight's expert speaker for our Tuesday Night Policy Call Series as she broke down the Governor's proposed budget.

The call began with a discussion around the Governor's decision to 'not recommend' Pennsylvania accept $48 billion in federal funding to expand the Medicaid program to over 700,000 residents. "There is still a door open," said Sharon Ward as she explained how there are still ongoing conversations between Pennsylvania and HHS.

Corbett Says NO to 700,000 Pennsylvanians. WE SAY YES! Act now to bring coverage and jobs to PA!

Governor Corbett announced he's "not recommending" Pennsylvania accept our funds.

As part of the new health care law, Pennsylvania can accept billions in federal funding to offer health coverage to 700,000 working adults. 

Accepting the money is the commonsense thing to do. We can cover more people AND save taxpayers millions of dollars that get spent on emergency room care for the uninsured.
