Report reveals human face of Pennsylvania's Medicaid program

PITTSBURGH, March 14 The non-partisan Pennsylvania Medicaid Policy Center (PMPC) released its Faces of the Pennsylvania Medicaid Program report today. The report is an easy-to-understand and comprehensive look at the structure and reach of the Medicaid program in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. With rising health care costs increasing Medicaids role in Pennsylvanias health care landscape, this report makes the intricacies of the Medicaid program more accessible to stakeholders and policymakers by providing relevant data, graphs and charts, and cutting through the layers of complex legislative language.

"Millions of people rely on Medicaid across the nation. In Pennsylvania alone, about 15 percent of the population is enrolled in this health care program," said Judith R. Lave, Ph.D., PMPC director and chair of the University of Pittsburghs Graduate School of Public Healths (GSPH) department of health policy and management. "Not only will this report, and the work of the PMPC going forward, ensure policymakers and stakeholders are more informed as they debate critical issues about this programs future, but it also will help regular Pennsylvanians gain a greater understanding of Medicaids scope and breadth."

Faces of the Pennsylvania Medicaid Program provides key national and state data on Medicaid compiled from multiple sources, including the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare. It also includes a county-by-county look at the number and type of people covered as well as quotes from some of those people describing their experiences with Medicaid.

The PMPC Web site, http://www.PAMedicaid.pitt.edu, serves as a clearinghouse for Pennsylvania Medicaid information, including publications and research, statewide and county data and relevant links. Faces is the first of many publications that will be published by the PMPC, which was recently established at GSPH with support from private
