Quote of the Day

“Governor Wolf is offering bad medicine to the people of Pennsylvania with his Medicaid expansion proposal.  All Pennsylvanians deserve access to quality care and Medicaid expansion does not offer that.  Medicaid is not insurance and instead offers poor quality care to those who need care the most.  We hope Governor Wolf will work with the legislature, not around them, to propose healthcare solutions that will work for the people of our Commonwealth.”

AFP-PA State Director Beth Anne Mumford

(Emphasis ours.  Just because a patient has a card to present to a provider does NOT make her coverage insurance.  Her healthcare and that of her dependent children would be better understood if we acknowledged that basic fact.)
