Battle over how to curb rising healthcare costs in Connecticut

Hartford Courant, March 1, 2010

Connecticut had the fifth most expensive group health insurance premiums in 2008 and has seen accelerating increases since, placing the state in the national debate about out-of-control premium hikes, the Hartford Courant reports. The increasing costs have ignited public outrage and political theater, particularly in Connecticut. State regulated group rates went up 13% and more for a family this year, while individuals who buy insurance on their own saw an average increase of 20.7%. Now, Connecticut legislators are weighing a bill to add further constraints on insurers raising premiums for individual plans, the Courant reports.
