Charter Oak after one year – mixed returns

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

One year after the implementation of the Governor’s Charter Oak Health Plan, the program is still struggling to make a difference for CT’s 326,000 uninsured as outlined in a Stamford Advocate article yesterday, updated today. Currently there are just under 9,000 members accessing care who may not have any other option. However, a year ago the Governor estimated that there would be 15,000 people in the program by now. Over 20,000 people have been unable to qualify for Charter Oak and the program has had difficulty getting providers to sign up.
