CT health reform progress meter finally starts moving up again
Starting to recover from the bomb thrown by SIM leaders in to CT’s Medicaid success, CT’s progress toward health reform moved up slightly to 28.4% this month – the first rise in two months. The progress resulted from detailed, and better, quality measures from Medicaid and CID’s insurance rate review that lowered insurers’ excessive increases for 2015. Consumer engagement and troubling Medicaid reimbursement issues held progress back, as does continuing concerns about SIM plans. The progress meter is part of the CT Health Reform Dashboard.
