While insurers seek to raise rates for CT scans, Congress is increasing health care benefits

On Friday, Congress passed a major inflation-targeting Democratic bill that would partially lower health care costs for those enrolled in the Affordable Care Act and Medicare. But as Connecticut lawmakers have praised the federal aid, they are also raising concerns about a proposed rate hike that could affect the plans of thousands of people in the state.

Connecticut Democrats are celebrating the “Lower Inflation Act” after more than a year of negotiations on a bill that has taken many different forms, including changes to tax policy and provisions on climate change. But while Americans may see some tangible benefits in the near future, most health-related programs will be implemented much more slowly.
