This toolkit provides suggested messaging, resources and graphics that can be shared to educate and inform CT residents about the importance of enrolling in health coverage and the steps they need to take to get covered for 2019. It also provides information about staying covered and using health insurance. This year, it’s important to stress the need to review and compare plans before renewing coverage because many people might face rate increases if they keep their current plans. Shopping around could lead them to a better, lower-cost option.
Similar to last year, Connecticut-specific messaging will be important because some information used in national tools does not apply here. Connecticut does not use the federal exchange; state residents sign up for coverage through Access Health CT, www.AccessHealthCT.com.
