Today’s NY Times includes an article outlining proposals to make health coverage more affordable for small businesses. Small companies pay 18% more than large businesses for the same coverage. The recent CT Healthcare Partnership bill proposing to open the state employee pool to small businesses was vetoed by the Governor; however she indicated that she wants to work with legislators next year to craft a bill she can sign. The article also applauds CT for earlier legislation that added some fairness and stability to rate setting for small businesses. CT Comptroller Nancy Wyman is quoted, “This is not an easy problem to solve. We know it.”
