Governor Rendell Says PA ABC Will Help Low-Wage Small Businesses Pay for Employee Health Coverage
Date:5/29/2008

Grants Will Help Firms That Already Offer Insurance to Workers

ERIE, Pa., May 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today said more than 10,000 uninsured adults in Erie County -- many of whom who work for small businesses and a quarter of which are on a waiting list to receive health care coverage -- urgently need the state Senate to approve a plan to help them gain access to health insurance.

He said small businesses that currently offer insurance would also benefit from the plan's $42 million in grants to ensure they maintain their commitment to providing health care coverage.

"I want small businesses to know that the House-approved PA Access to Basic Care can help them -- whether or not they currently offer health insurance to their employees," the Governor said while visiting the city of Erie to discuss the challenges of uninsured small businesses and the plight of uninsured individuals at the Martin Luther King Center.

"The vast majority of Pennsylvania's uninsured adults have full-time jobs and many are employed by small businesses that struggle to make a profit. More and more, these small businesses are forced to choose between continuing to pay hefty insurance premiums and letting their employees go without insurance.

"For the past year-and-a-half, I've heard from countless small business owners who have maintained insurance coverage for their employees despite the cost and asked what we could do to help them -- and PA ABC provides the answer. In addition to offering coverage for uninsured small businesses, PA ABC provides $42 million in 'CARE grants' to help small businesses that already provide health care for their employees."

The Governor called for passage of Pennsylvania Access to Basic Care, a health care plan that would be offered through the private market and subsidized by state and federal governments for small, low-wage businesses without insurance and uninsured individua
