Healthcare Affordability Scorecard


Polling data repeatedly shows that healthcare affordability is the top issue that state residents, on both sides of the political aisle, want their policymakers to work on. 

Connecticut's Healthcare Affordability State Policy Scorecard identifies areas where the state is doing well and areas where it can improve. As the scorecard shows, Connecticut policymakers have a robust toolset they can use to ensure all residents have affordable coverage that features consumer-friendly cost-sharing and premiums that reflect the efficient delivery of healthcare and fair healthcare pricing.

Connecticut has relatively high healthcare spending per person but a comparatively low percentage of residents report affordability problems. Recent spending growth has moderated, suggesting that policymaking efforts are achieving some success.

Our companion document, Healthcare Affordability State Policy Checklist, provides a quick overview of the actions Connecticut still needs to take.
