Connecticut healthcare effort takes a new turn
There has been much controversy in Connecticut of late over a landmark bill to open up the state-employee healthcare pool in an attempt to lower insurance premiums for small businesses, municipalities and others. Now some were surprised when Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said there could be two separate pools—rather than one gigantic pool to drive down insurance premiums. The issue is important because the single pool was the linchpin of cost savings, and the potential for two pools raised questions about whether the program would still be attractive to people who don't work for the state.
