Last Updated: 5/18/2010
Budget Issue: Fiscal and Policy Options for the the Every Woman Counts (EWC) Program (includes analysis of Governor’s May Revision Proposals for EWC)
Program: Every Woman Counts (Breast Cancer Early Detection)
Finding or Recommendation: Adopt a modified version of the Governor’s cost containment proposals, consider redirecting existing funding for research to direct clinical services, improve transparency and legislative oversight by requiring the administration to prepare a formal budget estimate for the EWC program, and consider the long-term future of the program in light of federal health care reform.
