Overwhelming Support For Seven-Year Hospital Settlement

by Christine Stuart

The Senate passed the two bills detailing the settlement and the implementation 33-0 and the House passed the same bills 136-0 and 135-0, but with no debate.

The settlement, negotiated by Gov. Ned Lamont’s administration, Attorney General William Tong, and the Connecticut Hospital Association, will cost the state $872 million over seven years. The hospitals will gain $1.8 billion over that same seven year period.

“Today marks the start of a desperately needed reset between the state and our hospitals, and I am thankful that we were able to come together and negotiate a settlement in good faith that provides stability for both sides while reducing the losses the state would have incurred in the absence of this agreement,” Lamont said following passage of the settlement.
