Bill Caroselli plaintiffs' attorney for former adultBasic insured

Pennsylvania's adultBasic insurance program may be gone, but it's not forgotten in the state's appellate courts system.

Three people formerly covered by the low-cost insurance program that provided coverage to 41,000 residents have filed a lawsuit in Commonwealth Court seeking its reinstatement, the AP reports this morning.

The lawsuit names Gov. Tom Corbett and top lawmakers as defendants. The plaintiffs' lawyer, Bill Caroselli, tells the APthat the Legislature and executive branch have no legal ability to end the program.

Caroselli claims state law still requires that a portion of the cash from PA's 1998 settlement with the tobacco industry has to go into an adultBasicaccount. Allowing the program to end violates the state Constitution and the 2001 law that set aside money for adultBasic, the AP reports.
