This Saturday, June 2, Access Health CT (AHCT) representatives will be setting up informational booths at the Festival del Coquí in Bushnell Park. AHCT’s community outreach team participates in events across the state, like this, to reach customers in their neighborhoods. AHCT is happy to once again, take part in this greater Hartford celebration given its commitment to bringing healthcare awareness and information to areas and individuals that need it most.

“We’re excited to participate in the festival and have one-on-one conversations with members of the community,” said AHCT Director of Marketing Andrea Ravitz. “Even though the Open Enrollment period doesn’t start until November 1, 2018, residents could be eligible for a Special Enrollment period if they have a qualifying life event. We are committed to inform, educate and engage with different communities around the state and talk about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and take advantage of all the benefits our plans offer.”

The Festival del Coquí, which is directly after the Greater Hartford Puerto Rican Parade, is a one-day event in Bushnell Park during the first weekend in June, historically marking the opening of the season of Puerto Rican parades and festivals throughout New England. The festival will kick off with the presentation of the United States and Puerto Rican National Anthems, a flag presentation and a presentation of honorees. Attendees will enjoy live music, artistry and delicious food.

AHCT representatives will be setting up booths at the festival, giving free healthcare information to customers. “Last open enrollment, over 25,000 residents in Hartford County signed up for healthcare coverage through Access Health CT, and in 2019 we look forward to helping more members of the community,” said Ravitz.

The parade and festival are organized by the Connecticut Institute for Community Development Puerto Rican Parade Committee, whose mission is to preserve Puerto Rican culture by promoting leadership and education, celebrating traditions and being involved in community service for the Puerto Rican and Hispanic Community. More information on the day’s events can be found on the Committee’s website.

“We hope residents will join us on Saturday to celebrate our community’s culture and stop by to speak with us,” said Ravitz. “We are here to help.”
