Corbett’s Insurance Plan

December 6, 2013
Northern Tier (WENY) - Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett wants billions of dollars of federal Medicaid expansion money to get insurance for a half-million poor workers in his state.
    
Corbett plans to post his proposal online this morning. Then he will hold six public hearings before January 13th then submit it to the federal government in February.
     
Obama's health care law says it will take on most of the cost of Medicaid expansion. Corbett wants to use the expansion money for private insurance plans an idea similar to the one the federal government approved in Arkansas.
