Introducing Connecticut’s Health Care Future

HARTFORD, Conn. – As some Connecticut lawmakers discuss a state government option which would put politicians in control of families’ health care, and which could also increase costs and harm the state’s economy, a new organization called Connecticut’s Health Care Future launched today to advocate for solutions that build upon what is working in health care, not push Connecticut families into a new government-controlled health insurance system.

  • The state government option would destabilize the private health coverage Connecticut families rely on.
  • Connecticut’s Partnership Plan 2.0 lost over $10 million in 2018. Hardworking taxpayers can’t afford another unaffordable new government insurance system.
  • The state government option would put the jobs of thousands of Connecticut workers at risk, in exchange for a system that would force patients to pay more to wait longer for worse care.

Connecticut’s Health Care Future believes every patient deserves access to affordable, high-quality health care, but an unproven one-size-fits-all system controlled by politicians would threaten consumers’ choice of coverage and care.  The unaffordable costs and negative consequences consumers and patients could experience under a new government-controlled system help explain why there is no successful state government option anywhere in America.

Connecticut’s Health Care Future is a project of the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future Action.
