CT health reform progress moving backward again this month

CT’s progress toward health reform dropped from to 27.0% this month mainly because of SIM setbacks again, but the Appropriations Committee’s vote to reverse many proposed budget cuts is a ray of hope to maintain Medicaid’s progress. A six-month delay to SIM’s rush into risky shared savings models is a good start to begin thoughtful Medicaid reform. Ethics, conflict of interest, and secrecy problems continue to circle SIM.
