Millions of Pennsylvanians have benefitted from the ACA – from bans on annual and lifetime limits to expanded access to free preventive care. For example, more than 5 million people in our state have preexisting conditions – more than half under the age 65 – and can no longer be denied coverage. Since I expanded Medicaid, 700,000 Pennsylvanians gained coverage. More people are getting care and fewer people are worried about health costs and debt.
I’ve joined bipartisan governors to propose solutions and we’re ready to drive down health costs and make targeted, common sense changes to fix and improve the ACA.
