(Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) Gov. Tom Corbett announced this afternoon that Pennsylvania will not run its own insurance exchange under the new federal health law.

In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Mr. Corbett said the state had not received answers to its questions about establishing a state-run marketplace for health insurance. Without more information, he said, he would not pursue a state-based exchange “at this time.”

“It would be irresponsible to put Pennsylvanians on the hook for an unknown amount of money to operate a system under rules that have not been fully written,” he said.
