SIM bill hearing in Public Health next Wednesday
HB- 6938, AAC the Delivery of Quality Health Care and Modernization of Health Care Facilities, will have a public hearing next Wednesday March 11th at 10:30 at the LOB in Room 1D. SIM is planning to radically transform health care for every state resident, including moving 200,000 Medicaid members back into a financial risk model by Jan. 1st – and it’s never had a legislative hearing. Among other things, the bill directs the Office of Health Care Advocate to conduct a study concerning the feasibility of using currently available SIM federal funds to establish a model program for the delivery of value-based high-quality health care in Waterbury, a community facing serious health concerns and challenges.
