Ask the Federal Government to Protect Seniors and the Disabled with Medicaid Expansion!

From our friends at PHAN

As more and more people benefit from the ACA across the country, some people are still falling through the cracks. In some states, individuals and families who earn too much for Medicaid but not enough to afford health insurance can take advantage of Medicaid Expansion. In Pennsylvania, Governor Corbett has chosen to propose a different health care model to the US government, and is waiting for their decision.

Right now, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is reviewing Governor Corbett's proposed alternative "Healthy PA" plan. Under this plan, thousands of current Medicaid enrollees could see their coverage and access drastically reduced.

The public comment period to have your voice heard on the Governor's "Healthy PA" plan ends April 10. Please tell CMS how you feel about "Healthy PA".

Hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians are stuck in the a gap right now - earning to
o much to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to afford healthcare. By taking just a few seconds to email CMS, you're standing up for them and helping to secure an important victory.
