Pennsylvania Becoming an Island of the Uninsured

The evidence is beginning to pile up showing just how much Pennsylvania is losing by failing to expand Medicaid under the Afforadble Care Act.

JUST IN: House Derails Medicaid Expansion. But the Fight is Not Over!

The Senate passed Medicaid Expansion (with huge bipartisan support, 40-10) in a code bill that accompanies our state budget, and sent the bill back to the House for final approval. Unfortunately, a small minority in the House stripped Medicaid Expansion back out, and blocked efforts to allow all members to vote on it. 

We want to be clear about 2 things:

With Bipartisan Senate Vote, Medicaid Expansion Victory in Sight

1 more vote and we WIN Medicaid Expansion!

CALL YOUR REP. and tell them to VOTE YES on Medicaid Expansion (House Bill 1075). 

We've fought hard, and it's paid off!

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.
