Access Health CT Open Enrollment Deadline is January 15, 2022

  • Connecticut residents in need of quality, affordable health insurance can enroll by the deadline with coverage starting February 1, 2022

HARTFORD, Conn. (January 6, 2022) — Access Health CT urges Connecticut residents to shop, compare and enroll in health insurance before the end of Open Enrollment on midnight, January 15. Current Access Health CT customers who want to renew coverage or change their health insurance plan also have until the January 15 deadline – and they must report any financial income and household information changes at this time.

Access Health CT is the only place to qualify for financial help to lower health insurance costs. Some Connecticut residents may be eligible for free or low-cost coverage through HUSKY Health (Medicaid/Children’s Health Insurance Plan) and the Covered Connecticut Program.

“Now is the time to enroll in health insurance through Access Health CT – and thanks to the American Rescue Plan Act signed into law last year, many Connecticut residents are seeing more savings than ever before. Those who did not qualify in the past may now be eligible for significant financial help,” said Chief Executive Officer of Access Health CT, James Michel. “We are here to help, and all help is free.”
