PHLP Recognized for Leadership in Advocacy
Last week, the Association for Community Affiliated Plans (ACAP) honored PHLP's commitment to making Pennsylvania's Medicaid program more accessible. PHLP's Executive Director traveled to Washington, D.C. to accept the award and to deliver remarks.
ACAP CEO Margaret Murray addressed the importance of PHLP's work: "Effective advocates... can make an outsized difference in facilitating access to coverage and care. Without [PHLP's] efforts to educate consumers, practitioners and health policymakers, many Pennsylvanians would have fewer or no choices in care- especially those with low incomes or disabilities."
ACAP represents 59 nonprofit safety net health plans in 24 states, which together serve nearly 12 million people enrolled in publicly-operated health programs. The association's mission is to improve the health of low-income and vulnerable populations.
