HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AARP Pennsylvania released the following statement in response to federal officials today approving a waiver to expand Medicaid for Pennsylvania:
"AARP Pennsylvania is pleased that an agreement has been reached to provide health coverage to more than 500,000 hard-working Pennsylvanians – including 90,000 residents age 50-64 – many of whom are either between jobs or in jobs without health coverage. AARP Pennsylvania was one of many groups encouraging the state over the last two years to close this coverage gap, and we are pleased that so many state residents will not have to wait much longer to get the coverage they need. The final agreement is responsive to many of the concerns AARP Pennsylvania expressed in our comments, but some concerns remain. We look forward to reading the important details of the final agreement and working with state and federal officials as this process moves forward."
