The Cabinet has convened four Working Groups to explore distinct elements of the impact of pharmaceutical costs on Connecticut's healthcare system, as well as current legislative and administrative initiatives in Connecticut and across the nation to address this, and to develop strategies to reduce these healthcare costs, increase transparency in healthcare and costs, promote consumer engagement and education.  Updates on each Working Group's efforts can be found at the pages listed below:
