CT health reform progress meter ticks up slightly
December’s CT health reform progress meter ticked up very slightly this month. Medicaid redesign planning is still on track, working collaboratively with all voices at the table. New Medicaid quality data confirms the program’s improvements and the number of person-centered medical homes in the program passed 100. However that good news was balanced by troubling news on the fate of the first HUSKY parents cut from coverage, SIM ethics problems continue and SIM’s push to make their new, but not promising CCIP program a mandatory burden on new Medicaid networks. In other good news however, an RFP went out to hire health planners for the study of CT reform options from SB-811 last session. The CT health reform progress meter is part of the CT Health Reform Dashboard.
