Medicaid Still Being Ironed Out

Governor Tom Corbett is defending his Healthy PA plan for Medicaid expansion as the final proposal is prepared for federal approval. Corbett says the plan to allow low income Pennsylvanians to use Medicaid expansion dollars to buy private insurance is policy not politics. He says it would require a smaller staff expansion at the state level to manage and would get those enrolled move involved in their health care. He says talks continue with the federal government and a final plan should be submitted next month.
