Governor Wolf Hosts Press Conference to Discuss GOP Healthcare Plan’s Negative Impact on Seniors

Center in the Park, 5818 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA

Governor Wolf will be joined by Secretary of Aging Teresa Osborne to host a press conference on the Republican Affordable Care Act replacement plan, the American Health Care Act, and the negative impact the plan would have on Pennsylvania citizens, specifically seniors.

On Wednesday, Governor Wolf sent a letter to five PA Congressmen on two key U.S. House committees to formally ask that they reject the American Health Care Act. The proposed AHCA would allow insurance companies to charge seniors five times more than others and would drastically cut subsidies, especially for seniors with fixed or low incomes and in rural areas.
