More press and a defense on YNHH, clinics plan for New Haven primary care

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Both concerns and support were raised at the public hearing about the proposal to close Yale-New Haven’s primary care clinics, move patients and YNHH clinicians to a more distant site, but technically transfer 28,500 patients to the Fairhaven and Cornell Scott Hill health centers. CTHPP testified with concerns about potentially substantial new costs to the state, higher costs for uninsured and underinsured patients, transportation to the new site, access to medications and family planning services and executive bonuses tied to the deal. The proposal has generated a great deal of press and submitted testimony including community concerns and one defense of ED visit rates at Fairhaven Health Center. The applicants have until tomorrow to answer questions about their transportation and hardship waivers for patients facing higher costs.
