Connecticut governor cool to expansion of state worker insurance pool
Hartford Courant, May 8, 2008
Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell has expressed reservations about a bill that would permit municipalities, nonprofits and small businesses to join the state employee health insurance pool. Rell said she viewed the legislation as "well-intentioned," but possibly harmful to the state employee health system. The bill allows insurers to base rates on the same factors as they would for small employers outside the pool, such as age, gender, group size, location and type of industry.
