Urban Institute analysis of the ACA’s impact on Connecticut

A new report shows the impact of the Affordable Care Act on Connecticut, with data on coverage and costs across the state, as well as for the state’s largest cities, Litchfield and Windham Counties, black and Latino residents, women, and young adults.

The report, based on an analysis by the Urban Institute’s Health Policy Center, found that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) reduced Connecticut’s uninsured rate by nearly 50 percent, and that minorities, people without a college education, and workers are disproportionately represented among those who gained coverage under the health law. However, even those with employer-sponsored insurance and Medicare were significantly affected by changes created by the ACA.
