Corbett, US to start meeting on Pa. Medicaid plan

By: The Associated Press


Top aides to Gov. Tom Corbett say they're scheduled to meet with officials from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on his Medicaid plan.

Administration officials said the Monday meeting in Baltimore is the first since Corbett released his plan to use federal Medicaid expansion dollars to cover hundreds of thousands of uninsured adults.

Negotiations are required since Corbett is seeking changes to the Medicaid expansion envisioned President Barack Obama's signature health care law. If those changes are approved by the federal government, a process that allows for public comment must follow.

Administration officials say they believe their proposals are reasonable and are grounded in good policy and should be approved quickly. They say they are unable to say immediately how much it would cost the state.
