SIM FAQs updated
We’ve updated the Frequently Asked Questions about CT’s SIM plan. SIM is the state’s newest plan to radically reform health care delivery and payment across the entire state. Advocates have raised concerns that the plan doesn’t do enough to protect consumers from stinting on care resulting from payment reform, could reverse recent progress in CT’s Medicaid program, lowers effective medical home national standards now commonly used in our state, and will undermine critical public health functions. The final plan was developed without input from critical stakeholders, including consumers. The updated FAQs include a description of the final plan, the process so far, implementation plans going forward and links to more on advocates’ concerns.
