Connecticut residents have more time to enroll in a health insurance plan with coverage starting January 1, 2022
CT Health Access announced today that Connecticut residents have more time to shop, compare and enroll in a quality health insurance plan with coverage starting Jan. 1, 2022. Dec. 31, 2021.
Customers who sign up between December 16 and December 31, 2021 will have the option to choose whether their coverage will start on January 1, 2022 or February 1, 2022. Customers who sign up between January 1, 2022 and January 15, 2022 will have coverage from February 1, 2022.
âWe are grateful to work with our carrier partners to give Connecticut residents more time to enroll in a quality health insurance plan with year-round coverage,â said James Michel, CEO of Access Health CT. âGaps in health insurance coverage can be costly and since we are not yet out of the pandemic, access to affordable, quality health insurance has never been more important. However, we ask customers to be patient as it will take some time for their insurance company to mail the insurance ID cards.
Access Health CT is the only place to get financial assistance to cut costs, and some Connecticut residents may be eligible for free or low-cost coverage through the HUSKY Health Program (Medicaid / Medicare Plan for children) and the Connecticut Covered Program.
Connecticut residents can find free help and register in person, online, or over the phone.
