CT health reform progress down again

Unfortunately CT’s progress toward health reform dropped again this month to 26.4.5% this month, adding to last month’s dip. News that the only about half of AccessHealthCT consumers are even using the coverage they pay dearly for, increasing concerns about SIM’s ethics and grants to insiders, SIM’s cool reception to consumer protections in risky financial models, transparency issues and budget cuts all contributed to the decline. Only Medicaid offered bright spots this month including a sharp reduction in phone wait times and a continued commitment to strong stakeholder engagement in reform planning.
