This state will give anybody a free ambulance ride for nearly any reason. We transport drunks to emergency rooms. We spend lavishly on a growing indigent population in our sanctuary cities. Those are the "costs" Mr. Counihan wont come out and specify fully and honestly.
Good, How does it feel voting in the same liberal crap everytime an election comes around

It’s not going to cost anywhere near as much as they say - there are subsidies - remember? /s

Not to mention, in the interests of redistribution, people with higher incomes will pay higher rates. I’m assuming there are many high income people in CT who have not yet fled the state. They’ve been paying the highest taxes, too.

I live in CT and every time one of my family members needed an ambulance, we paid. One time, I had to give them a check before!!

In Massachusetts welfare/Medicaid recipients get unlimited fertility treatments as part of their free health care because,as it was explained by some filthy Rat in the State legislature,”well,it's mandated for health plans for those covered by other plans so we can't deny it to the most vulnerable among us”.

Costs are high...if you are a productive citizen.
If you are a leech in CT, you've got it made. Because the median income is the nation's 2nd highest (after HI), income levels for subsidy qualification are much higher too.

Awesome. I love news like this. Enjoy your high prices, suckers.
Just a matter of time before a law is passed, or Obama issues an EO, making it illegal to get treatment across state lines.

We in CT have a very high standard of living. We have more wealth per capita than any other state (give or take). We have the highest or near-highest median household income.
We have nearly the highest medical/hospital/dental costs in the nation. So we have to pay some of the highest insurance rates for that high cost care.
in other words, it all evens out across the country.
(Unless you aren’t rich in CT, of course.)
