[size=18]Court to consider Dirigo savings[/size]

Tuesday, February 13, 2007
AUGUSTA (AP) - The state supreme court hears oral arguments today on whether first-year savings generated by the state's Dirigo Health program were properly calculated.

Legal jousting over the program's impact on insurance carriers and other businesses has continued even as Gov. John Baldacci considers changes, possibly including a new financing mechanism.

[size=18]Maine Supreme Court Grapples With Dirigo Health's Cost Savings[/size]

The Maine supreme court took up one of the most contentious issues in the governor's Dirigo Health initiative Tuesday, whether the first-year savings generated by the program were properly calculated.

At issue is a 2005 ruling by Insurance Superintendent Alessandro Iuppa that Dirigo Health Agency initiatives produced savings of $44 million in the first year.
