Pittsburgh-area healthcare advocates to keep up fight

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, June 19, 2008

Although the Pennsylvania Legislature will be on a summer recess, Pittsburgh-area advocates who are pushing for a major healthcare expansion vow to continue their work. The Consumer Health Coalition, Health Care for Health Care Workers and other groups recently traveled to Harrisburg to lobby for Gov. Ed Rendell's Pennsylvania Access to Basic Care plan. The plan would subsidize health insurance for adults with incomes up to 200% of the federal poverty level.
