More than 100,000 Pennsylvania households who were booted from Medicaid amid a state effort to purge the program of waste will get a chance to have their medical benefits reinstated, advocates announced Tuesday.
Lawyers said they have reached a settlement with the Department of Public Welfare to resolve claims that eligible families were improperly purged from the health insurance program for the poor and disabled.
Under terms of the agreement, households will be able to submit a one-page form asking for reinstatement. Eligible families will be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket medical expenses they incurred while they were removed from the program.
The dispute began in 2011 as the Department of Public Welfare tackled a backlog of 385,000 cases that state officials said were overdue for eligibility reviews.
