Low or no cost health insurance open enrollment ends soon
Connecticut residents have until next Sunday, January 15th to sign up for health insurance through Access Health CT. About 100,000 Connecticut residents get their health insurance through Access Health CT and 70% get financial assistance to afford coverage. Two thirds of uninsured Americans qualify for free or subsidized coverage; they just haven’t signed up. Free plans are available for people who qualify in every Connecticut county. Recently Congress and the state of Connecticut expanded insurance subsidies, making coverage more affordable for those who don’t qualify for free coverage. People can figure out what they qualify for and find a plan that fits their needs online or call 1-855-805-4325 (TTY at 1-855-789-2428).
Note: There is a glitch on the website they are trying to fix. You may qualify for zero cost coverage under Covered Connecticut, but you have to go to the end of the enrollment process to find out.
It’s important to note that people can sign up for Medicaid/HUSKY or Covered Connecticut anytime, including after January 15th.
