July’s CT Health Reform Dashboard reflects growing uncertainty at the state and federal levels. If passed, Congressional proposals to replace the ACA will shift massive costs onto CT and result in a sharp drop in coverage. State budget cuts threaten current services and coverage.

Insurers seek double digit rate increases and physicians are building a health information exchange, because the state can’t seem to get it done.
