There are affordable coverage options available for many CT uninsured but they need to apply soon. An analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that 22,888, or 23% of uninsured CT residents qualify for $0 premiums with tax credits for 2019 bronze-level plans on our state’s exchange, AccessHealthCT. Many likely also qualify for significant relief from cost sharing. CT News Junkie reports that early enrollment numbers this year in AccessHealth CT plans appear to be down from last year. Enrollment in AccessHealthCT for 2019 insurance coverage closes at midnight on Saturday. There are exceptions that allow later enrollment and Medicaid applications do not have a deadline.
