Access Health CT: Three Days Remain to get Covered

Nine Federally Qualified Health Centers will be Available for In-Person Assistance

Stamford, CT | Added on March 28, 2014 At 04:38 PM

Those in Connecticut still in need of health care coverage can visit one of the nine federally qualified health centers this weekend, a final push by Access Health CT to get people covered by the March 31st deadline. 

“Our team is working diligently to ensure that every Connecticut resident who wants to get covered is able to do so,” said Access Health CEO Kevin Counihan. 

Access Health CT has already seen a huge surge in recent weeks, saying the call centers have quadrupled their staff since enrollment began in October. The outreach teams only expect those crowds to continue over the next three days.  

“We want to make sure residents know that there are a variety of places where they can go to obtain enrollment assistance,” Counihan continued. 

Residents will face a tax penalty if they do not obtain coverage or receive an exemption by Monday, March 31st.  Following that date, only residents under special circumstances will be able to sign up.  Those circumstances include: divorce, marriage, adoption and loss of insurance with loss of employment.

While residents can still visit or call the AHCT call center (1-855-805-HEALTH), the nine health centers partnered with Access Health CT will be available for in –person assistance.
