Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett nearing 'breaking point' with Obama administration

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett is expressing frustration with the federal government's apparent unwillingness to accept his plan to use billions of federal Medicaid expansion dollars to subsidize private health insurance policies for hundreds of thousands of the state's working poor.

Corbett said Wednesday he's getting to his breaking point with the Obama administration.

At issue is a conference call between staff members of the Corbett administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on Monday. Corbett aides said they received discouraging signals about elements of the plan.

The Corbett administration is seeking more changes than any other state to the Medicaid expansion under the 2010 federal health care law. That includes waiving Medicaid's consumer protection rules on benefits and networks for the private insurance plans funded by expansion dollars.
