Connector Saving Taxpayer Money

On this blog– and in the press– I have often been critical of the policy choices of the Connector and its governing Board. However, credit is due to the staff at the Connector for the latest round of negotiations with CommCare’s managed care organizations, in which $80 million of taxpayer money was saved.  With a projected 11% membership growth this coming year, any savings is welcome in a program with subsidies of roughly $840 million.

As Executive Director Glen Shor said in his monthly update e-mail, this will mean that CommCare “members will not have to face the prospect of benefit reductions…”– good news in a tight budget year.
