In Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Corbett is looking at various reforms to its Medicaid program before it opts for expansion, including a work-search requirement “that will provide incentive for those on our public assistance programs to transition into the workforce and instituting reasonable copays for able-bodied Pennsylvanians,” spokeswoman Christine Cronkright said.

The state is also looking at whether it can use the influx of federal funds to help the qualified Medicaid population buy private insurance on the state’s exchange, she said, akin to a strategy that Arkansas has pioneered in the last several months.
