Yesterday, CT’s Office of Health Strategy asked Yale-New Haven Health System for more information about their controversial plan Yale New-Haven’s application to shift care for 28,500 mainly low-income New Haven area residents to a new site, far from neighborhoods and to shift Medicaid billing for those patients to the two community health centers. Information requested relates to billing processes for patients who are unable to pay their medical bills, timeline and delays in the plan, a change in federal regulations about communications with patients about family planning options, and transportation to the new site and why YNHH rejected plans for a shuttle bus.
