The deadline to register for a health insurance plan through Access Health CT will be this Saturday, January 15.
There have been many registrations this year.
As of last week, more than 108,690 Connecticut residents have registered, which is a record for the Connecticut exchange.
Although low cost plans are generally available for residents below certain income thresholds, more people are currently eligible for assistance due to the American Rescue Plan Act, which increased grants and extended them to families earning more income than in previous years.
Connecticut received $ 85 million over the next two years to help lower monthly premiums.
So even though the Insurance Department has approved rate increases for most plans, Connecticut residents may still be able to lower their monthly costs.
“Now is the time to purchase health insurance through Access Health CT – and thanks to the American Rescue Plan Act enacted last year, many Connecticut residents are saving more than ever before. Those who were not eligible in the past may now be eligible for significant financial assistance, ”said James Michel, CEO of Access Health CT. “We’re here to help, and all help is free. “
Customers can choose from plans offered by Anthem Health Plans and ConnectiCare, and coverage will begin February 1.
There are several ways to subscribe to a plan, either in person, online or over the phone.
