CT Health Reform Dashboard update reflects Medicaid concerns

February’s CT Health Reform Dashboard update reflects growing concerns about CT’s Medicaid program. Problems with the new EVV system threaten consumer access to home care, provider sustainability and privacy rights. The experimental PCMH+ program began a month ago, but no information on the program has been shared and plans for evaluation too little and too late to identify harm, overspending or erosion of CT Medicaid’s hard-won progress over the last five years. But, even if they stumble upon a problem, it will be too late to fix it. The Cabinet continues exploring prescription drug cost control with a lot of room for agreement on that pressing budget issue. In good news, state oversight of YNHH’s acquisition of L&M is getting better with insistence that community representatives and consumer advocates be included in the solution.
