CT health reform progress meter down again slightly to 29.5%
CT’s progress toward health reform is still stuck. The meter moved down again this month slightly to 29.5%. As usual, Medicaid accounted for most of the progress with comprehensive quality reporting, impressive long term services and supports, and transparent, collaborative payment reform planning. We love it when state agencies show all their work – even the stuff that needs improvement -- it builds credibility and you can trust that you are seeing the whole story. Again SIM challenges lowered the progress meter by abandoning workforce, and transparency (FOI) and accountability (ethics) challenges for the SIM consumer advisory board. The CT health reform progress meter is part of the CT Health Reform Dashboard.
