Corbett’s Health Insurance Exchange Decision

Corbett’s Health Insurance Exchange Decision

Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Corbett, announced on December 12th that the Commonwealth will not be establishing its own Health Insurance Exchange. To most of us, this came as no surprise. Here’s the link to the Governor’s statement along with his letter to Secretary Sebelius. Within his letter, the Governor states his financial concerns of expanding Medicaid eligibility within the state. He cites to a $4 billion cost to the state over an eight year period. At this time the Governor has not decided whether Pennsylvania will expand Medicaid eligibility or not.
