Governor Wolf Joins Senator Bob Casey to Release Data on Effects of American Health Care Act

Governor Wolf and U.S. Senator Bob Casey will host a press call to highlight the potential negative effects the American Health Care Act will have on older Pennsylvanians.

In Philadelphia and Allegheny Counties alone, over 39,000 adults over age 55 rely upon Medicaid for nursing home care or senior care in their homes and communities. This care also supports over 250,000 jobs in the Commonwealth. A near $1 trillion cut to Medicaid puts care for seniors, jobs, and economic activity in jeopardy.
