Maternity Care Coalition is leading the way to increase insurance coverage for pregnant women and families.
Pennsylvania has the chance to promote the health and economic wellbeing of families by expanding Medicaid as part of the landmark Affordable Care Act (ACA). A critical component of health care reform’s goal to successfully provide coverage to the uninsured, the Medicaid expansion would cover all Pennsylvanians under the age of 65 with income below 138 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). In 2014, 138 percent of the FPL would be $15,415 for an individual or $31,809 for a family of four.
Join the Cover the Commonwealth campaign. Tell Governor Corbett and your elected representatives to support the expansion of Medicaid in Pennsylvania.
