Governor Rendell's Health Care Reform Cabinet Says Providing Access to Health Care for Pennsylvania's Uninsured is Within Reach
Date:3/4/2008

nd individual market would be required to 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 would 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.

The Rendell administration's written testimony to the House Appropriations Committee, as well as more information on the Prescription for Pennsylvania, can be found at HYPERLINK "http://www.rxforpa.com/" http://www.rxforpa.com.

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.
