Foundation presents plan to provide universal health coverage in Connecticut
About 1,000 people packed the Great Hall at Hartford's Union Station for the presentation of a comprehensive plan to eventually provide healthcare coverage to all Connecticut residents. The proposal is called SustiNet, and is drawn from the state motto to "reflect the proposal's commitment to health and sustainability," according to the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut. Several years of research and work by a host of interest groups led to the proposal, said Janet Davenport, vice president of communications for the foundation.
