The State hasn’t posted the waiver documents yet, but we have them. Dig in, health reform wonks.
Also, State House News reported this afternoon that the health reform technical amendments legislation may move today (Thursday). One reason for urgency in moving the bill is a waiver provision that prevents the state from getting certain federal reimbursements until a technical correction is enacted. We’ll try to post anything we get as soon as we can.
Friday, the Affordability Committee of the Connector meets to discuss affordability issues, particularly C-CHIP premiums. The meeting, open to the public, is at 10:00 at the Hoagland-Pincus Conference Center in Shrewsbury. We’ll have an update on that meeting, too.
Friday morning addendum: The House and Senate were in late last night (House ’till 11:37, Senate past midnight),
but no technical corrections bill emerged on the floor, and the House passed a 56-section technical corrections bill. Both branches meet for the last day of formal sessions next Monday. A bill could be passed during the “informal” sessions that continue for the rest of the year, but unanimous consent would be required.
