Corbett seeks federal help for those with pre-existing conditions

    Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett wrote to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today to request more money and flexibility for PA Fair Care.

    As the Associated Press reports, the governor is trying to help those state residents with pre-existing medical conditions and who are running out of time on their current coverage to get health care insurance. It would require those qualified to be without insurance for six months before enrolling.

    Meanwhile, Corbett has come with more expensive alternatives for those enrolled in the adultBasic plan.
