Letter: Malloy key in state's affordable care success
Published 12:31 pm, Saturday, August 30, 2014
Many Darien citizens may not be aware that under Gov. Dan Malloy's leadership, Connecticut has become a national leader in the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. In fact, Connecticut is No. 1 in the rollout of the ACA.
No other state has had its uninsured rate cut in half, and no other state has been hired by other states to help them with their rollout of the ACA.
Because the state deployed key resources in support of the ACA rollout, many more people than expected were contacted and successfully enrolled.
The individuals enrolled will benefit from acquiring or improving their health insurance coverage, and the state and our local health-care systems will also benefit from significantly lower uninsured medical expenses.
