In response to public concerns, Sen. Richard Blumenthal will hold a third emergency field hearing on the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act tomorrow, June 30th 10:00 to 11:30 am at the Hartford Public Library, 500 Main St. Earlier this week, CBO reported that the bill would make 22 million more Americans uninsured and cost state Medicaid programs $772 billion by 2026. A new analysis from Governor Malloy predicts that the Senate’s bill would raise insurance premiums in CT by 10 to 15% and cost CT’s state budget up to $2.9 billion annually when fully implemented.
