Starting Today A New Insurance Plan For Pennsylvania Residents With Pre-existing Conditions

A new plan to help Pennsylvania residents with pre-existing conditions is taking applications starting this week.  The plan is called “PA Fair Care” and is being designed to help those who can not get insurance because they have a pre-existing medical condition.

The monthly premium is an affordable $283.20.  The plan has a $1,000.00 yearly deductible and a $25.00 co-pay for doctor visits.

There is no financial need criteria!  You must be a US citizen, have been without health insurance for six months and have been turned down or charged unaffordable premiums because of a pre-existing condition.

Only 3,500 people will be initially signed up on a first come, first serve basis.  Eventually, 5,600 people will be covered until 2014.

Highmark Blue Shield is the plan provider.  PA Fair Care is being funded by a $160,000,000.00 federal grant.
