PA Gov. Rendell Offers "Prescription for Pennsylvania"
Check out PA Gov. Ed Rendell's "Prescription for Pennsylvania" health reform proposal. Some key ideas:
-- Mandated participation by employers -- starting with firms with 50+ workers
-- Coverage subsidies for uninsured with incomes below 300% of the poverty line
-- Phased-in individual mandate for those with incomes above 300% fpl
-- Elimination of hospital acquired infections and medical errors
-- Requirement for electronic health records
Looks more like MA than we would have expected.
