Representative Elizabeth Esty, who represents Connecticut's 5th District, recently emailed constituents the following message: "Dear Friend,
The goal of the Affordable Care Act is to build stronger, healthier communities through increased access to quality healthcare options.
In Connecticut, these options have brought our uninsured rate to a historic low of 3.8 percent with over 700,000 residents gaining healthcare coverage through our state’s health insurance marketplace, Access Health Connecticut.
That means there’s still more that needs to be done to ensure that all residents who lack coverage are aware of the options available to them. Most importantly, the opportunity to enroll only comes around once a year.
If you or someone you know needs health insurance, now is the time to sign up for quality, affordable coverage for 2016.
Open enrollment kicked off this week and will run through Sunday, January 31 – leaving us with less than three months to help more Connecticut citizens get covered."
Rep. Esty goes on to recommend people contact Access Health CT for enrollment information, but did you know that you can still purchase health insurance from your trusted, local professional insurance agent? It's true, The Russell Agency can provide you with all you need to know about obtaining health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. We can even assist you in determining if you qualify for subsidies.
