What does my governor's decision about the Affordable Care Act mean for me?


Recommended Posts

Please keep this non-political and give me some real answers.


According to this link (though I did not watch the video), Governor Corbett has decided not to create insurance exchanges here in PA: http://www.repwilltallman.com/NewsItem.aspx?NewsID=15867&utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=http%3a%2f%2fwww.repwilltallman.com%2fNewsItem.aspx%3fNewsID%3d15867&utm_campaign=The+Latest+on+Obamacare


I haven't found more information about this yet, but what does it mean for me? Does it mean that PA will not be expanding Medicaid coverage? Does it mean that there will not be a low-cost available health insurance program for adults in PA? (PA used to have something similar to CHIP for adults; they stopped that a few years ago.) Does it mean that I will personally *not* be required to buy health insurance nor face a penalty for not doing so? Can someone enlighten me as to exactly what this means for me?
