Governor Rendell Says Passage of PA ABC Would Help More Than 36,000 Uninsured Citizens Living in the Lehigh Valley
Date:5/1/2008

on for Pennsylvania is Governor Rendell's plan to: ensure access to affordable health insurance for all Pennsylvanians; expand access to health care; improve the quality of care; and help bring health care costs under control for employers and workers. PA ABC is the health insurance plan set forth by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, which builds on the Governor's Prescription for Pennsylvania proposal. It passed the House in March with bi-partisan support.

Health coverage under PA ABC will be offered through private insurance companies. Employers can participate if they have not offered health care coverage to their employees for at least six months, if they have 50 or fewer employees and, if, on average, these employees earn less than 300 percent of the federal poverty level, or $31,200 per year.

All uninsured adults in Pennsylvania - no matter what their employment status or income level - will be able to purchase affordable health insurance through this program at the same premium rate the commonwealth pays. In addition, an individual from a family of four that earns up to $42,400 a year will receive help from the state in paying part of his or her PA ABC premium.

"It isn't only the uninsured consumer who pays a price," the Governor said. "About 6.5 percent of insurance premiums paid by businesses and individuals goes just to cover the cost of health care for the uninsured. As a result, every Pennsylvanian pays the cost of having an inadequate health care system."

The Rendell administration is committed to creating a first-rate public education system, protecting our most vulnerable citizens and continuing economic investment to support our communities and businesses.
