Come Learn About New Health Care Reform Provisions Going into Effect Next Week

Ending pre-existing condition clauses for children, banning lifetime limits and that practice of insurance companies rescinding care...

All these provisions and more go into effect next week - six months after the passage of health care reform.

Join the Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN) for an event on Monday September 20th at 1:00 PM at the Arch Street Methodist Church. Speakers with include:
  • Senator Robert Casey
  • Ron Pollack, Executive Founding Director of Families USA and 
  • Joanne Grossi, Region 3 Director US Department of Health and Human Services

PHAN is proud to welcome all three for what promises to be an exciting event! These dynamic speakers will take you through the significant changes to our health care system you should expect to be seeing soon.

And if you're one of the thousands of Pennsylvanians that worked last year to help make these reforms a reality, be sure to come on Monday to show your support!

Doors open at 12:30 PM on Monday, September 20th at the Arch Street Methodist Church, 55 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia 19107.

Space is limited - RSVP today to Athena at

There will be an opportunity for questions, so bring any you may have and come ready to learn.
