Unfortunately CT’s progress toward health reform is down again this month to 25.6%, dropping for the fourth month in a row. Medicaid’s rushed return to a risky financial model and recent provider cuts led the concerns. However Medicaid officials continue to consult with stakeholders in the design. Higher premiums on CT’s health insurance exchange added to the troubles along with SIM’s imprudent plans for community resources that are undermining Medicaid’s progress. The CT health reform progress meter is part of the CT Health Reform Dashboard.
