Where do you go when the healthcare system fails? For more than 20 years, PHLP has been that place. We stand by people whose physical and mental well-being are compromised by illness. We fight for individuals and families—like Xiani’s—who need essential services and supports.
Each year, we counsel thousands of low-income Pennsylvanians distraught by the decisions of health insurers that reduce or terminate an essential benefit. In our experience, Pennsylvanians challenging insurance denials are more successful when they receive expert guidance. Few are able to fully understand the standards of proof to prevail, especially when high levels of emotional involvement often cloud that understanding.
PHLP knows the rules of the insurance programs and knows how to prove the need for a health care service or treatment. We protect some of the most vulnerable consumers in our managed care system—e.g., medically fragile children like Xiani.
We are appreciative for the fellowship of the many agencies with whom we partner, and we thank every one of our donors because that support has improved the lives of thousands who have turned to PHLP for direct help.
After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday provides the opportunity to get into the true holiday spirit of giving back to those in need. PHLP celebrates the generosity of its supporters on November 29th.
PHLP offers its services free of charge, and relies on contributions like yours to provide our services. Your support helps Pennsylvanians access health coverage for themselves and their families, giving them peace of mind and the opportunity to be independent, contributing citizens of our Commonwealth. While you are shopping for gifts for loved ones, please consider a gift to PHLP and to Pennsylvania's most vulnerable.
