PA ABC Health Care Proposal Will Benefit Small Businesses, Revenue Secretary Says
Date:6/18/2008

uing to pay hefty insurance premiums and dropping health coverage for employees. According to the Economic Policy Institute, between 2000 and 2006, almost a half million Pennsylvanians lost employer-based health insurance - second only to California.

"It's not just the uninsured who pay a price, as almost 7 cents of each dollar paid in insurance premiums is spent to cover the cost of health care for the uninsured," said Wolf. "Every Pennsylvanian pays the cost for an inadequate health care system, and we can no longer afford to ignore the need for real and effective health care reform."

In January 2007, Governor Edward G. Rendell introduced Cover All Pennsylvanians, a plan to provide access to health insurance coverage for the uninsured and for low-wage small businesses. In March 2008, the Democratic House leadership introduced a proposal called Pennsylvania Access to Better Care, or PA ABC, to insure about 275,00 uninsured adults over the next five years. For more information on that proposal, including a 10-year financial analysis, visit http://www.RXforpa.com.
