Connecticut officials reach truce in healthcare plan dispute
Hartford Courant, November 26, 2008
Top Connecticut officials gathered in a meeting that clarified that Gov. M. Jodi Rell's controversial Charter Oak healthcare plan is no longer linked to the popular HUSKY plan for children. The state social services department and Democratic legislators have clashed for months over Rell's Charter Oak plan. Despite a previous statement to the contrary, Social Services Commissioner Michael Starkowski made it clear that doctors can now enroll in HUSKY without being required to also enroll in Charter Oak, which only covers those 19 to 64. They can choose to join either program or both.
