The Good News- The CT General Assembly voted to restore health care coverage for 110,000 elderly and people with disabilities- providing a temporary fix to the Medicaid Savings Program (MSP). This is a step forward to CT. But there is more to be done.
New figures from the state Department of Social Services show that 13,600 HUSKY A parents are likely to lose their health care in the next year due to eligibility changes in the Medicaid program. (Previously, the reported number was 9,500.)
Senator Martin Looney has called on his colleagues to work on bi-partisan budget changes that stated that make the temporary MSP fix permanent- AND reverse cuts in the HUSKY A program. See Sen. Looney's letter in this ctnewsjunkie article.
