Beginning next year, people will have the option to purchase insurance under the official health insurance exchange in Connecticut called, Access Health CT. Enrollment opens October 1st and will offer coverage that will take effect as soon as January 1st. Customers buying insurance through the exchange will have three plans to choose from—bronze, silver and gold. Premiums vary on benefit and out of pocket costs. Many people who buy insurance through Access Health are expected to qualify for discounted rates, subsidized by the federal government. Subsidies are based on age and income level. An analysis done by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that about 48 percent of individual adults’ purchasing coverage for themselves will be eligible for subsidies next year. While not everyone is eligible to receive health insurance through Access Health CT, anyone can use the marketplace to find and enroll in a plan that fits their needs.
