Governor Rendell Tells Congress 'Prescription for Pennsylvania' Will Improve Health Care Climate for Small Businesses
Date:2/26/2008

offer the same basic health care plan, so employers can compare apples to apples in choosing health care coverage, which will foster price competition in the small group and individual market.

Other Prescription for Pennsylvania initiatives will generate significant health care cost reductions by eliminating additional costs due to avoidable health care acquired infections, avoidable hospitalizations due to lack of community care for chronic conditions, and avoidable errors.

To ensure that these savings are translated into reduced premiums for employers and individuals, Prescription for Pennsylvania would give additional rate approval authority to the Insurance commissioner, tying cost control in health care delivery to cost control of health care insurance.

"Research shows that few American business owners would be satisfied with the performance of the health care system if it were their business," Governor Rendell said. "Spiraling supply costs, inefficiencies in the system driving up overhead, poor quality outcomes endangering customers, and little or no access for millions of Americans - these are not the markers of a successful business. These are the markers of a business in crisis.

"As the largest collective purchasers of health insurance, employers can and should drive the fundamental health system reform our country needs - and that Americans want. But in order for them to do so, we must be sure that we are giving our small businesses the tools they need to keep their employees healthy and their productivity competitive so that they can succeed in an increasingly global marketplace.

"That is not happening, and it is unacceptable. It's why states like Pennsylvania are tackling this challenge."
