Another 'no': The federal government will be running Pennsylvania's insurance exchange, Republican Gov. Tom Corbett said Wednesday.
"[Pennsylvania] will not move forward with a state-based health exchange because there are too many unknowns with too little time, not enough flexibility and too high a cost to our taxpayers," Corbett said.
The House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. State health officials and and others will discuss the state of the law's insurance exchanges and Medicaid expansion.
The Senate Finance Committee will hold a hearing on the cost and care associated with people enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid.
