Immediate impact of national health reform for CT

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The White House has developed a list of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act to CT this year. The list includes small business tax credits, closing the Medicare donut hole, funding for early retirees, no lifetime limits on coverage, no rescissions, no pre-existing condition exclusions for children, all children to age 26 can stay on their parents’ policies (and parents don’t have to pay taxes on those benefits), Medicaid coverage (and matching funds) for SAGA, $50 million for a high risk pool, funding for community health centers, and to train more providers. And that’s just part of the list.
