Bipartisan agreement reached to restore Medicare Savings Program $$$

December 13, 2017

Good news.

Legislative leaders have reached a bipartisan agreement to adopt changes to the state budget to restore funding in full for the Medicare Savings Program in fiscal year 2018.

I believe we need to restore the Medicare Savings Program funding as quickly as possible to assist 113,000 low income senior citizens and disabled patients.

Gov. Malloy could easily call the legislature into special session immediately to make this happen.

But Gov. Malloy hasn’t done so.

That, to me, is puzzling and disappointing.

That is why I have joined my fellow legislators in signing a petition to schedule a vote on this solution as soon as possible.

I will keep you apprised on this developing situation.
