ConnectiCare and the parent company of Hartford Hospital said this week they have agreed on a new accountable-care arrangement with the goal of better managing patient care and reducing medical costs.
Harvard Pilgrim Health Care announced Monday it has hired former ConnectiCare CEO Michael E. “Mickey” Herbert as a consultant to prepare the company for operations in Connecticut.
Herbert, 68, has a career in health insurance that stretches back several decades and includes time spent on the national health care scene. Most recently, he served on the board of the Connecticut Health Insurance Exchange, a quasi-governmental online marketplace for health plans that will be available to customers in the fall and is part of federal health care reform.
The Hartford Courant reports:
FARMINGTON— The ConnectiCare building was evacuated on Friday after a threatening message was found on a bathroom wall, police said.
Police were called about 2 p.m., said Lt. Marshall Porter. They decided to evacuate the building while they searched it as a precaution.
