HARRISBURG, Oct. 31 – As a longtime proponent of health care access and affordability, state Rep. Nick Pisciottano, D-Allegheny, voted to support a bipartisan bill that will help families and doctors by expanding health insurance pre-authorization for patients.
“This bill is a win for patients and their doctors because it will remove barriers and make sure people can access the essential medical care they need,” Pisciottano said. “This bill was a true bi-partisan effort, one which brought together not just lawmakers, but doctors, hospitals and insurance companies. We need to continue to do all that we can to make health care in Pennsylvania not just accessible, but affordable, as well.”
Some of the bill’s highlights include:
The bill has passed both the House and Senate and has been sent to the governor’s desk.
