The Pennsylvania Senate is still working toward a vote to expand Medicaid eligibility to hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians under the 2010 federal health care law.
Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa said Thursday that Democrats are working with the chamber's majority Republicans to draft legislation. A vote could happen as early as Friday, as lawmakers wrap up their work before departing Harrisburg until fall.
Its fate in the House is uncertain. Costa and Governor Tom Corbett's spokesman declined to give details about the discussion. Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati told The Associated Press last week that conditions in the forthcoming legislation would ensure that children aren't forced to switch from the Children's Health Insurance Program into Medicaid.
Other conditions could include a work-search requirement and cost sharing with enrollees.
