Pennsylvania Governor Rendell Ceremonially Signs Four Health Care Bills That Will Reduce Costs, Improve Access and Quality
Date:7/1/2009

Three of the bills were part of the Governor's 'Prescription for Pennsylvania'

CAMP HILL, Pa., July 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today ceremonially signed three health care measures that were part of his landmark Prescription for Pennsylvania health care reform plan and a fourth that was originally proposed as part of the Senate Republican package of health care bills.

"I'd like to recognize the good work of the legislature in working together to pass these bills that continue to advance the critical elements in my Prescription for Pennsylvania health care reform plan," Governor Rendell said while signing the bills at Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill. "The bills I'm signing today and the ones I've signed over the past two years are helping provide health care coverage for thousands of uninsured Pennsylvanians, reduce the cost of health care and improve health care quality for all Pennsylvanians."

The House and Senate had passed almost identical health care bills and the Governor had urged them to work in a bipartisan manner to enact the bills since there was no disagreement on substance.

"One of these bills will be the answer to the prayers of parents whose kids will be graduating from college and will be kicked off their health insurance policies because they've reached the maximum age. Parents and kids are stressed because the kids are now uninsured and are having trouble finding jobs, with health insurance, due to the current economic situation.

"Another bill will help relieve the worry of the employee of a small business who is about to lose his or her job and will now be given the opportunity to keep and pay for health insurance for a short period of time while searching for another job or being rehired by the employer as the economy recovers.

"We will end the practice of paying for medical errors by making it ill
