Connecticut to expand Medicaid coverage to single adults

Hartford Courant, June 22, 2010

Connecticut will save $53 million in the next year by shifting the cost of medical care for about 45,000 low-income single adults from a state program to federal Medicaid. Connecticut has become the first state in the U.S. to take advantage of federal healthcare reform laws passed in March expanding Medicaid services to low-income single adults who don't have children, the Hartford Courant reports.
