Persons with a disability who require an auxiliary aid or service may submit comments using the AT&T Relay Service at 1-800-654-5984 (TDD users) or 1-800-654-5988 (voice users).
Public hearings on the proposed 1115 Demonstration application have been scheduled to solicit public input. Public hearings will be held in six cities across Pennsylvania. Two webinars will also be held as public hearings. The Department will accept verbal and written comments at these public hearings. In case of inclement weather, the Department will develop an alternative hearing date, which could be an in-person hearing or a webinar. If you intend to provide verbal comments at a public hearing, registration prior to the date is required. Registration is not required for persons attending to listen or for persons submitting their comments in writing, but the Department is requesting those interested in attending register to help ensure there is adequate seating and assist with inclement weather notification. If there are capacity limitations, priority will be given to those who have registered to attend. Please see the registration deadline for each hearing below.
To register to present verbal comments or to attend in person please click the register button above and complete the registration information. You may also call the Department at 1-877-395-8939 or 1-800-654-5984 (TDD users) with your name, telephone number and the date of the public hearing you will attend. Each individual must register to provide verbal comments.
If you intend to present verbal comments at a public hearing, your comments will be limited to three minutes to allow others time to share their comments. To assist the Department in accurately capturing verbal comment, individuals are asked to provide their verbal comments in writing at the address or email provided previously.
Promoting Healthy Pennsylvania to Increase Access To Affordable and Quality Health Care for all Pennsylvanians
Healthy Pennsylvania is Governor Tom Corbett's plan to ensure that Pennsylvanians have increased access to quality, affordable health care. The Healthy Pennsylvania plan focuses on three key priorities: improving access, insuring quality and providing affordability. It is built upon common sense reforms that provide coverage options to our most vulnerable citizens in a flexible and sustainable way that protects taxpayers.
