HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Stuart H. Shapiro, M.D., President and CEO of the Pennsylvania Health Care Association, today issued the following statement regarding Governor Tom Corbett's "Healthy PA" proposal:
"Governor Corbett's 'Healthy PA' proposal is both very thoughtful and the right step for Pennsylvania. The state's current Medicaid system is on an unsustainable path. Rather than take the easy way out and continue to expand this program, the Governor has proposed a Pennsylvania solution that is financially sound and will provide Pennsylvanians with greater access to quality healthcare. I applaud Governor Corbett for his commitment to implementing a Pennsylvania-specific plan that will bring greater affordability, accessibility and quality, and assure that services to the elderly and disabled will not be reduced."
