CSMS, 45 Healthcare Stakeholders Oppose SB 1028

CSMS and the coalition to oppose SB 1028 were joined by other healthcare stakeholders this week, and sent a joint letter to the Connecticut Senate expressing serious concerns about the bill.

SB 1028 would extend the statute of limitations for an injured minor to bring a negligence action to one year after the minor attains the age of majority. The bill would drive up the cost of healthcare without improving quality or access to care. In addition, the bill’s proponents have been unable to provide any evidence to show a need for this legislation.
