Access Health CT open enrollment continues

Access Health CT, the state’s online health insurance marketplace, will continue to offer open enrollment through Jan. 31.

Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, chairwoman of the board of Access Health CT, on Wednesday emphasized that the site will continue to offer health insurance, and that if there are changes in the federal Affordable Care Act under President Donald Trump, the state will work to maintain its program for residents.

“I want to reassure Connecticut consumers that Access Health CT will continue to be a vital link, connecting them to high-quality, affordable health insurance,” she said in a news release. “In Connecticut, we’ve seen more than 800,000 residents use the state healthcare exchange to find coverage. During this open enrollment period, just as we’ve done before, Access Health CT stands ready to assist consumers in finding and enrolling in the healthcare plan that best meets their needs."

"Our leadership on healthcare is well-established. If there are any changes in the federal ACA, we will address them — and, as always, the priority will continue to be ensuring affordable, accessible, high-quality healthcare for our residents,” she said.

Enrollment in HUSKY Health (Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program) is open all year through Access Health CT and the state Department of Social Services.
