Here's the statement from Connector Board chairwoman Leslie Kirwan:
“As the Commonwealth Care bid process moves forward, it is apparent that more time is needed to not only analyze the premium bids for Commonwealth Care, but also to determine how they relate to proposed cost-sharing decisions.
“The postponement is a prudent course of action. The bids we received were not satisfactory. As we continue to accumulate information, we want to be deliberate about making key decisions.”
Sounds like the Comm Care bids came in (as my kids would say) WAY high. Does anyone know?
