Constituents and health care administrators came together for a town hall meeting at the Blasco Library.

The focus was two proposed house bills, numbers 16-21 and 16-22...

The bills are aimed at protecting patient access and choice when it comes to healthcare.

The primary concern is the situation between Highmark and UPMC and potentially lost coverage.

The legislation is proposed by Representative Jim Christiana and Representative Dan Frankel who were both on hand along with several other area state representatives.

The assuring patient access and consumer choice act are said to directly impact area residents if solutions are not reached.
