Blue Dog Legislative Q&A

It was great to be able to hear from all of you at the Blue Dog Legislative Q&A that I went to with my wonderful colleagues Reps. Jill Barry and Chris Poulos. Hearing from you gives me the guidance I need to understand what issues are most pressing for our community and how to address them in Hartford.

As the session continues, I will remember your concerns and give a voice to the Waterbury community alongside the rest of my delegation.

A Deal Has Been Reached Between Cigna and Trinity Health

A deal has finally been reached between Cigna and Trinity Health. The two have entered a multi-year agreement on reimbursement rates and all claims since January 1 will be processed in the deal. Beginning on March 1, all Trinity health providers, and also St. Mary's Hospital, will be back in the Cigna System.

This is happy news, as thousands covered city employees and qualified retirees were affected by the deal not being reached after January. Now that a deal has been reached, our causes for concern have been reduced in the city of Waterbury.

If you want to read more details about the deal, you can find them at the Waterbury Republican.
