CT lost ground in progress toward health reform according to the August CT Health Reform Dashboard. The state moved backward to 28% completion mainly due to the new SIM/Medicaid plan that has drawn concerns from many stakeholders, less transparent policymaking, and concerns that a federal grant is driving health policy choices. Progress on patient-centered medical homes was mixed with improvement by reaffirming national standards, balanced by re-direction of glide path funding to support Medicaid shared savings.
