Pennsylvania Governor Signs Four Health-Care Bills That Will Reduce Costs, Improve Access and Quality
Date:6/10/2009

Three of the four bills were part of the Governor's Prescription for Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa., June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today signed three health care bills that were part of his Prescription for Pennsylvania health care reform plan and a fourth that was originally proposed as part of the Senate Republican package of health care bills.

"I'd like to recognize the good work of the legislature in working together to pass these bills which will help provide health care coverage for thousands of uninsured Pennsylvanians, reduce the cost of health care and will improve health care quality for all Pennsylvanians," Governor Rendell said.

The House and Senate had passed almost identical health care bills and the Governor had urged them to work in a bipartisan manner to enact the bills since there was no disagreement on substance.

"One of these bills will be the answer to the prayers of parents whose kids will be graduating from college and will be kicked off their health insurance policies because they've reached the maximum age. Parents and kids are stressed because the kids are now uninsured and are having trouble finding jobs, with health insurance, due to the current economic situation.

"Another bill will help relieve the worry of the employee of a small business who is about to lose his or her job and will now be given the opportunity to keep and pay for health insurance for a short period of time while searching for another job or being rehired by the employer as the economy recovers.

"We will end the practice of paying for medical errors by making it illegal for health care providers to charge when they've made a serious, preventable medical mistake. Can you imagine any other business that charges you to fix a mistake that it has made? And we will continue to benefit from the groundbreaking work started 23 years ago
