Last Minute Sign-Up for Access Health CT

Deadline Monday, March 31

Stamford, CT | Added on March 31, 2014 At 02:57 PM

March 31 is the last day for open enrollment to sign up for health insurance coverage through Access Health CT (AHCT). Due to a surge in enrollment, Access Health CT has been partnering with Federally Qualified Health Centers and the Navigator and Assister Outreach Program (NIPA) to provide in-person health care enrollment assistance.

"In the past week, we’ve experienced record interest in Access Health CT, with thousands of residents looking to enroll in quality, affordable health care before the March 31 deadline," said Access Health CEO Kevin Counihan. "Our team is working diligently to ensure that every Connecticut resident who wants to get covered is able to do so. Our enrollment centers have been incredibly busy, so we want to make sure residents know that there are a variety of places where they can go to obtain enrollment assistance."

Residents who do not have health care coverage can shop and compare plans 24/7 at or call the AHCT call center at 855-805-HEALTH (4325). AHCT said in a press release, the call center staff has quadrupled in size since open enrollment began in October, and representatives will be available March 31 until midnight.
