New issue brief examines impact of Governor’s proposed Medicaid cuts
A new CTHPP issue brief explores the Governor’s budget proposals for the Medicaid program, CT’s largest coverage plan. The brief describes the costs of replacement coverage from the insurance exchange for the 34,000 HUSKY parents who would be cut in the Governor’s proposal. The brief also puts perspective on the cuts compared to savings in the program over the last two years from care management and quality reforms, declines in HUSKY A enrollment, and describes what could be lost if funding for final implementation of the innovative health neighborhood program is cut.
