DSS Presentations & Legislative Testimony

Overview

Financial Trends in the Connecticut HUSKY Health Program - A Foundation for Sustainability; presentation to the Medical Assistance Program Oversight Committee (February 8, 2019; revised February 15, 2019).  Please note: the revised presentation reflects updated enrollment counts for 2012-2015 across all DSS programs, to correct an earlier data integration process error.  As a result, the count of the number of people served increased by 13% for 2012, 10% for 2013, 8% for 2014 and 4% for 2015 (counts for 2016, 2017 and 2018 remain unchanged).  These updated enrollment numbers cause updated per-member/per-month cost data, incorporated in the revised version. Bottom line, however: the downward cost trends remain in effect.  We regret any inconvenience that may have been caused by the initial version of our presentation.
