HARRISBURG, Pa. - A spokeswoman for Gov. Tom Corbett said his top aides felt that a meeting with federal officials on his Medicaid plan went well.
Corbett's aides were enthused by Monday's three-hour meeting in Baltimore, said spokeswoman Lynn Lawson.
It was the first such meeting since Corbett released his plan to use federal Medicaid expansion dollars to cover hundreds of thousands of uninsured adults.
Lengthy negotiations, however, could be required since Corbett is seeking changes to the Medicaid expansion envisioned in President Barack Obama's signature health care law.
More meetings are expected, and there's no date set for a federal decision on Corbett's proposal, Lawson said.
Administration officials said they believe their proposals are grounded in good policy, but are unable to say how much it would cost the state.
