AN ACT CONCERNING STATE-WIDE EXPANSION OF THE PRIMARY CARE CASE MANAGEMENT PILOT PROGRAM.

OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact:

Agency Affected

Fund-Effect

Department of Social Services

GF - Uncertain

Note: GF=General Fund

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill requires the Department of Social Services (DSS) to expand the current primary care case management (PCCM) pilot program to Torrington and Putnam. DSS must then add two more municipalities every 90 days until the program is operational in all eight counties.

Comparative per member, per month costs between the PCCM pilot and the standard HUSKY managed care program are not available as the anticipated external evaluation has not yet been completed. As such, the fiscal impact of expanding the alternative PCCM model is not known.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
