CT health reform progress dips again

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Unfortunately CT’s progress toward health reform dropped again to 27.5% this month, undermining last month’s gain. News that the state’s uninsured rate may not have dropped much, sharp increases in insurance premiums, SIM’s ethics, transparency and underservice council issues and budget cuts, especially HUSKY parents, all contributed to the decline. Bright spots include restoration of most Medicaid provider cuts, passage of SB-811, and Medicaid’s strong stakeholder engagement in reform planning.
