HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf says Pennsylvania won't apply for a Medicaid block grant proposed by President Donald Trump's administration that would include a limit on how much the federal government contributes.

Wolf said this week's Trump administration proposal could lead to cuts in Pennsylvania's Medicaid enrollment or increase its costs, and force states to restrict the number of people and services they cover.

In exchange for operating under a fixed federal allocation, states would be able to limit what prescription drugs and benefits will be covered under the program, within certain guidelines. Its scope would be restricted to coverage for “able-bodied” adults under 65.
