Pennsylvania State Spotlight

The Keystone State has made recent progress in implementing the ACA. While the state has opted to participate in the Federally-facilitated health insurance Marketplace in lieu of establishing a State-based model, Governor Corbett has issued a proposal to expand Medicaid by allowing eligible adults to purchase private health insurance coverage through the state’s Marketplace.

  • Key Info: On August 28, 2014, Governor Corbett announced CMS approval of his Healthy Pennsylvania Medicaid expansion plan. Under the plan, newly eligible adults will receive private health insurance coverage beginning in 2015, funded with Medicaid dollars. Starting in 2016, current copayments will be eliminated and eligible individuals with incomes greater than 100% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) will be required to pay 2 percent of their income toward a monthly premium, though may receive discounts for healthy behavior.
