CT health reform progress moving backward again this month
CT’s progress toward health reform dropped from to 27.0% this
month mainly because of SIM setbacks again, but the Appropriations Committee’s
vote to reverse many proposed budget cuts is a ray of hope to maintain Medicaid’s
progress. A six-month delay to SIM’s rush into risky shared savings models is a
good start to begin thoughtful Medicaid reform. Ethics, conflict of interest,
and secrecy problems continue to circle SIM. The CT health
reform progress meter is part of the CT Health Reform Dashboard.
