There’s a national debate going on about just how costly health insurance will be once federal health reform rolls out next year. And this week, Connecticut got another clue.
The ink had barely dried on national health care reform in May 2010 when Connecticut lawmakers adopted a plan to expand coverage for the poor. But while Connecticut has been ahead of the national curve in embracing the reforms, advocates warned that with Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling, Connecticut’s head start in pursuing federal health care dollars is over.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy tapped the administrator who helped implement the nation’s first health care reform law in Massachusetts to lead Connecticut’s effort to establish a health care exchange.
