Reforming the State’s Medicaid system in the midst of the Affordable Health Care Act is a priority for the Corbett Administration. Secretary of Welfare, Beverly Mackereth says, there’s been a lot of confusion, but for people in Pennsylvania who are not insured, plans similar to state employee policies are available.
“We’ll have people come in through the Federal exchange, they would be able to get the essential benefit package and that would meet their healthcare needs. The Federal dollars would used to pay for those costs.”
Mackereth was a guest on Comment Please By Univest Wednesday afternoon with Darryl Berger.
