Statement By OPM Secretary Ben Barnes On Hospital Funding In the Governor’s Proposed Budget
“The simple truth is that hospitals have benefited from extraordinary increases in state funding over the last decade, especially in the few years since Connecticut embarked on Medicaid expansion. In fact, their funding has increased from $712 million in 2003 to $1.75 billion this year, an increase of 245 percent. Although hospital executives are now claiming they are being cut, they are simply trying to preserve large increases in state funding. The reality is that the Governor's proposal would hold them at just about the same amount of total funding through 2015 that they get this year.”
