On Wednesday, November 20th, Pennsylvania Health Access Network will be asking you to join in a statewide day of action urging Governor Corbett and your lawmakers to expand Medicaid coverage in 2014.
Today, you can sign this petition and mark your calendar for Wednesday.
All hardworking families deserve the security of knowing they can see a doctor when they get sick without facing enormous medical bills. If Pennsylvania fails to act on this federal opportunity, hundreds of thousands will be left out in the cold with no options for affordable coverage in 2014.
You can let your legislators know that Pennsylvania cannot afford to turn down federal funding that states like New Jersey and Ohio will use to insure their citizens and give their health care economies a needed boost in 2014.
As many as 400,000 Pennsylvanians will have no other affordable health care options if we do not act soon. These Pennsylvanians are our neighbors and friends. They take our orders at restaurants, fix our cars, and take care of our kids when we're at work - but don't earn enough to buy private health coverage.
Expansion will open the door to affordable quality coverage for them AND give Pennsylvania's health care sector a boost, especially the "eds and meds" that make up a large share of the state's economy.
You can sign the petition right now at http://org2.salsalabs.com/o/6560/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=15473.
