HARRISBURG, Pa. - Top aides to Gov. Tom Corbett said they're scheduled to meet with officials from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on his Medicaid plan.
The meeting in Baltimore on Monday is the first since Corbett released his plan to use federal Medicaid expansion dollars to cover hundreds of thousands of uninsured adults, administration officials said.
Negotiations are required since Corbett is seeking changes to the Medicaid expansion envisioned President Barack Obama's signature health care law.
If those changes are approved by the federal government, a process that allows for public comment must follow.
Administration officials said they believe their proposals are reasonable and are grounded in good policy and should be approved quickly. They said they are unable to say immediately how much it would cost the state.
