For the first time, Connecticut moved backward in progress toward health reform from 22.5% of tasks completed last month to 21.8% this month in the CT Health Reform Dashboard. Most reform tasks are due on Jan.1st of next year. Medicaid showed positive movement, as it has over the last year. However the state moved backward with the SIM project’s plans for ambitious payment reform without quality standards, and concerns about affordability in the insurance exchange, especially given the death of SB-596directing the exchange to negotiate premiums with insurers.
