Access Health CT Announces New Special Enrollment Period for Connecticut Residents with Lower Income
HARTFORD, Conn. (April 25, 2022) — Access Health CT (AHCT) today announced a new Special Enrollment Period (SEP) for Connecticut residents with lower income beginning April 25. This new SEP will provide access to no- or very low-cost health insurance plans made possible by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
To be eligible for this SEP, Connecticut residents must:
- Be new or returning customers who are not currently enrolled in a health insurance plan through Access Health CT.
- Have a household income at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).
Financial help toward the cost of monthly payments, known as premiums, is only available through AHCT. This SEP is open through calendar year 2022, unless the enhanced subsidies are extended beyond 2022 through federal legislation. Coverage begins on the first of the month following enrollment.
“This new Special Enrollment Period is all about creating access for Connecticut residents with lower income to get the health insurance coverage they need at an affordable price,” said Chief Executive Officer of Access Health CT, James Michel. “And it is another way we are working to accomplish our mission of increasing the number of insured residents and reducing health disparities.”
Connecticut residents can find out if they are eligible and enroll by calling Access Health CT at 1-855-805-4325, Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Those who are deaf or hearing impaired may use the TTY at 1-855-789-2428, or contact AHCT with a relay operator.
