There is a real danger of families not seeking care because they are uninsured and afraid that they can’t afford it.
Access Health CT just announced a new Special Enrollment Period to help uninsured residents sign up for a health insurance plan offered by either of Access Health’s two insurance carriers. The goal is to slow the spread of the virus and reduce its cost to all Connecticut residents which means everyone who needs it should get access to covered services and be tested and treated if necessary.
This new Special Enrollment period will only be open through April 2, 2020. Those interested in finding new insurance can enroll by phone at 855-805-4325 (TTY: 1- 855-365-2428). Our call center will be helping people Monday through Friday, from 8am to 5pm.
Individuals who lose their coverage due to unemployment are also eligible for a special enrollment window to get healthcare through AHCT as an alternative to COBRA.
If needed, they can also offer a webinar for any laid off staff or community members to walk them through this process.
