Highlights

Message from PA Department of Human Services
The Department of Human Services has been working diligently to get the word out to covered individuals and families to assure that they maintain important health insurance coverage going forward. The Department has also been analyzing data to see where more effort may be needed to assure that our clients understand the steps they must take to re-enroll in the event their cases have closed. We are hoping that you will connect with any community-based organizations within  your county that can help get the word out. Your understanding of the unique aspects of the communities you serve will be highly beneficial in helping spread the word. Resources to assist in communicating with residents within your county can be found on the PA Department of Human Services Website here
