CT health reform progress up to 16.7%
CT inched up only 0.3% in progress toward health reform last month. We have completed 16.7% of the tasks needed to be ready for January 1, 2014 when individuals will be legally required to secure health coverage. Highlights remain Medicaid and patient-centered medical homes. Unfortunately, problem areas continue to be the insurance exchange and insurance review. Last month, CT health care thoughtleaders gave CT a C+ grade for reform progress. For more, visit the CT Health Reform Dashboard at www.cthealthreform.org.
