Series II. Health Care, 1981-2004

Scope and Content Notes:

Series II contains Kukovich's plan for free and low-cost child health care termed CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program), which has been widely recognized as Kukovich's most significant contribution to the State of Pennsylvania. For other legislation to protect children, see Series VI. Children's Issues. Of almost equally enduring influence as CHIP are PACE and PACENET, which together provide assistance for prescription drug coverage to senior citizens in low income brackets. PACE/PACENET are well documented here, as are other senior protection measures such as Managed Care, the Older Adult Protective Services Act, the Medicare Overcharge Measure Act (MOM), and Guardianship and Family Caregiver bills. Kukovich was also firm in his support of the disabled; his efforts toward improved disability rights are included in this series. Of additional interest in this series are continued correspondence with popular health agencies including Blue Cross, Caring Foundation, Alzheimer's Association, and others.
