DRN Comments and Testimony on Draft Healthy PA 1115 Waiver; Please Submit Comments Also
The Department of Public Welfare is proposing “Healthy PA,” which would (1) cut benefits for adults on Medicaid (Medical Assistance), and (2) provide private insurance coverage for other uninsured adults, without the rights and protections of Medicaid.
The Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania has submitted comments to the Department of Public Welfare on Healthy PA and also testified at public hearings by DPW earlier this month. Please feel free to use portions of the letter in drafting your own comments. You can view the comments here and view the testimony here. Comments are due this Monday, January 13.
Email comments to ra-PWHealthyPA1115@pa.gov or mail them to: Department of Public Welfare, Attention: Healthy Pennsylvania Waiver, P.O. Box 2675, Harrisburg, PA 17105-2675. Persons with a disability who require an auxiliary aid or service may submit comments using the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at 800-654-5984 (TDD users) or 800-654-5988 (voice users).
