Pennsylvania Health Law Project provides free legal help to Pennsylvanians who are seeking health coverage through publicly funded programs, or have been denied a medically necessary service. Some examples of cases we handle are denials of eligibility for Medicaid (Medical Assistance), denials of services under Medical Assistance (e.g., home health aides, prescription drugs, durable medical equipment), individuals struggling with their health care costs and individuals struggling with their prescription co-pays under Medicare Part D.
