Connecticut AG says insurers couldn’t unilaterally change state contracts
There has been some controversy surrounding new legislation that would let Connecticut towns, small businesses and nonprofits join the state employees' health plan. Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is about to release a legal opinion that could blunt a major concern of Gov. M. Jodi Rell about the cost to the state, but raises uncertainty about what towns and others would end up paying for insurance. The legislation is aimed at giving towns and others access to the same rates, broad insurance benefits, and low co-payments that the state plan has.
