CT health reform progress moving up again
After five months’ decline, CT’s progress toward health
reform rebounded to 27.8% this month. Medicaid’s decision to cover new
Hepatitis drugs, six months of breathing room for Medicaid reform development,
Senate leadership on health care transparency, and promising comments from the
Ethics Board about SIM were responsible for the gains. Uncertainty about the
budget and SIM’s secrecy problems continue to hold reform back. The CT health
reform progress meter is part of the CT Health Reform Dashboard.
