Governor Wolf Announces Plan to Expand Medicaid

On Monday, Governor Wolf made an historic announcement that, moving forward, Pennsylvania will transition from Healthy Pennsylvania to one streamlined adult Medical Assistance (MA) package.  Under the plan, both the "low-risk" MA benefit and Healthy PA private coverage option (PCO) will be eliminated and all beneficiaries will be transitioned to the single MA benefit plan.  While details are still forthcoming, if the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approves the proposal, Pennsylvania will effectively have one MA program with multiple managed care organizations (MCOs) participating.  View the 60-second video developed to explain Gov. Wolf's plan and the frequently asked questions
