CT Health reform dashboard – progress up to 28.7%
As the ACA’s individual mandate, exchange coverage and dozens of other provisions became effective last month, CT has only achieved 28.7% of necessary benchmarks for effective health care reform, according to this month’s CT Health Reform Dashboard. This is up slightly from 28.3% for the last two months. Uncertainty and a lack of protections in the SIM process and unaffordable coverage in the insurance exchange are holding CT back. Medicaid and patient-centered medical homes are once again CT highlights.
