CT Health Reform Dashboard responds to efforts to undermine constructive policies

This month’s Health Reform Dashboard update reflects more attempts to unravel progress in CT.  Medicaid leads the concerns with broken promises on downside risk and attempts to weaken critical consumer notices about shifting provider incentives, potential underservice, and how to protect yourself. OHCA’s approval of YNHH’s acquisition of L&M health system will require a lot of unusual regulatory oversight and political will. The Health Care Cabinet continues to consider troubling reform recommendations for CT and SIM ethics concerns continue, especially in efforts to weaken Medicaid shared savings consumer notices.
