FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- As of last week, 62,153 Connecticut residents had enrolled in affordable health-care through Access Health CT for coverage beginning Jan. 1, the health exchange announced in a statement.
More than 6,700 Connecticut residents and small businesses enrolled for health-care coverage on Dec. 23, more than double prior enrollment results for a single day and the deadline for coverage starting Jan. 1.
Open enrollment continues through March 31.
“We’re delighted to have enrolled so many Connecticut residents in health care coverage for January 1st; however, our work is far from done,” said Kevin Counihan, Access Health CT chief executive officer. “Over the remaining three months of open enrollment, we will continue aggressive outreach to enroll even more consumers and small businesses in quality, affordable health care coverage.”
Consumers who have already enrolled will receive an invoice from their insurance carriers that must be paid by Jan. 10 for coverage effective Jan. 1, Access Health said in a statement. After the premium payments are received by the carrier, new member materials, including identification cards and welcome packets, will be mailed. Any questions regarding coverage should be directed to the carrier company.
The open enrollment period for health care runs through March 31 so consumers still have time to compare plans and shop for coverage. Visit www.accesshealthct.com or call 1-855-805-HEALTH (4325) to speak with an Access Health CT representative.
