PA Organizations Release Letter in Support of Pennie Subsidies

April 29, 2024

Today, a group of fifty-five Pennsylvania-based community groups released a letter in support of the proposal to create a state subsidy wrap for Pennie health insurance plans:

“We, the undersigned 55 organizations, call on you to work together to pass legislation that empowers the board of directors of Pennie, Pennsylvania’s state-operated health insurance marketplace, to create a one-year pilot program that makes health insurance more affordable. The number of uninsured Pennsylvanians is currently growing, and this pilot will get more Pennsylvanians covered and help make plans more affordable for Pennsylvanians who purchase their own insurance… We urge the administration and General Assembly to establish this pilot program and fund reinsurance to address the uninsured crisis Pennsylvania faces, keep our communities healthy, ensure our hospitals and healthcare providers are paid, and maximize Pennsylvania’s use of available federal funds.”
