Radio Smart Talk: NPR's Don Gonyea; PA decision on health insurance exchange

Written by Megan Lello, witf Reporter and Producer | Dec 13, 2012 8:58 PM

Radio Smart Talk for Friday, December 14:

The United States just experienced a contentious presidential election after heavy campaigning for more than a year. NPR Political Correspondent Don Gonyea spent much of that time on the road with President Barack Obama after serving as White House Correspondent for the network. On Friday's show, we'll hear from Gonyea about his time on the campaign trail, as well as what the nation can expect under President Obama's second term.

Also, Governor Corbett announced this week Pennsylvania won't be setting up its own private health insurance exchange in 2014. The decision means the federal government will instead oversee the system in the commonwealth. State Insurance Commissioner Michael Consedine will join us on the program to discuss what the exchange might look like. Eric Beittel and Rob Berger, both with the Central Pennsylvania Association of Health Underwriters, will also join the program to talk about how the exchange would affect the health care industry and the consumer.
