Public Health Emergency measures are slated to end in July—and with them, coverage for millions of Americans, including hundreds of thousands of CT residents.
CCP's Health Affinity group invites you to join our next meeting, Thursday, June 2, 9:00-10:30am. We’ll cover what happened during the legislative session on health issues and how the state is preparing for the end of the federal public health emergency designation, and opportunities for philanthropy to ensure that people maintain their health coverage. This is open to any member interested in health issues and/or health grantmaking.
The legislative session has ended. What happened on health issues? Learn from Alison Johnson, Policy Consultant about which issues were taken up and what decisions were made.
We’ll also hear from Laura Morris, Office of Health Strategy, and James Michel, Access Health CT, about what the end of the public health emergency rule means for CT adults and children on Husky, how the state plans to respond, and the potential roles for philanthropic action. It is expected that over 350,000 people will have to requalify for Medicaid and others may lose coverage for COVID-19 tests and access to other health services. Learn more about this national issue in a recent Kaiser Family Foundation article, “What Happens When COVID-19 Emergency Declarations End?”.
