CT health reform progress meter up to 28.8%
CT’s progress toward health reform moved up slightly to 28.8% this month, from 28.4% last month. Medicaid accounted for most of the progress including addressing audit issues that serve as a barrier to provider participation and the health neighborhood pilot for dual eligibles that is carefully protecting consumers from underservice in a collaborative and constructive process. Progress was limited by inadequate outreach resources for the upcoming AccessHealthCT open enrollment season and SIM’s decision to use admittedly inappropriate Medicare ACO quality standards for everyone simply to better position the state to receive the SIM grant amounting to about $6 million/year for five years . The CT health reform progress meter is part of the CT Health Reform Dashboard.
