HARRISBURG - The Corbett administration on Friday announced the list of insurance companies that had met its qualifications to provide coverage to hundreds of thousands of the uninsured by early 2015.
Under Gov. Corbett's proposed Medicaid expansion alternative, nine insurance companies would provide health care to as many as 600,000 low-income residents - most of them the working poor - who make too much for traditional Medicaid but whose employers provide no coverage.
"The governor is incredibly pleased with the response," said Jennifer Branstetter, Corbett's secretary of policy and planning. "The companies stepped up and came up with innovative plans."
