Monday Quick Hits: Hot Policy Topics for This Week

It will be another light week of interim meetings at the General Assembly. Of interest to our community, is the Tuesday, September 21st State Health Plan Blue Ribbon Task Force.

During last month's meeting of this task force, we learned that the state health plan has at least a $572 million deficit going into the next biennial budget cycle. This growing deficit is partially due to the continuing increase of health care costs. Another topic of interest in this committee is how our state health plan should prepare for the regulatory changes of health care reform legislation.
