  Medicaid service non-profits in Connecticut
In Connecticut, the state Department of Social Services contracted with three for-profit companies and one non-profit company for Medicaid services. Each organization refused to respond to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act requests for information about how much they were paying doctors under the plans. The Connecticut Attorney General and Connecticut Freedom of Information Coalition ruled that the documents must be made public.[2]


The Connecticut Freedom of Information Act does not specify whether or not non-profits fall within public bodies.
