CT’s Office of Health Care Advocate (OHA) returned $1.36 million in savings to health care consumers in our state between July and September of this year. OHA assists consumers struggling with insurance companies to access the care they need. So far this year, OHA has saved consumers $3.3 million in health costs. The savings include the costs of services denied by health insurers; without OHA’s help those costs would have been shifted onto consumers or providers. With rising unemployment OHA’s caseload is up 24% over the same period last year. Anyone needing help accessing care from an insurer can call OHA toll free at 1-866-HMO-4446 or email healthcare.advocate@ct.gov.
