HARTFORD, CT - Access Health CT CEO (AHCT) Jim Wadleigh and Representative Joe Courtney (CT-2) on Wednesday announced the details of the third enrollment fair during the 2018 Open Enrollment period. On Saturday, December 2, 2017, a team of Access Health CT staff, enrollment specialists, certified application counselors, and brokers will provide free in-person assistance to help consumers shop for healthcare coverage from 10:00 AM to 2:00 pm at the New London Opportunities Industrialization Center (106 Truman Street, New London, CT).

Open Enrollment for coverage beginning January 1, 2018 will end on December 22, 2017. Customers who don’t have coverage through AHCT can shop for a new plan, and those who do are encouraged to explore and compare 2018 plan options to renew. People need to update their application information, and compare the plans for 2018 to find the best fit for their healthcare needs. Over 50,000 people from New London County enrolled in healthcare coverage through Access Health CT in 2017.

On Saturday, November 18, Access Health CT held its second enrollment fair in Manchester. Over 100 people attended and enrolled in healthcare coverage for 2018 at that event. Connecticut resident and AHCT consumer John M. said, “My experience today was surprising. That would be the word that I would choose. I was all prepared for a long wait and people. Everyone was so friendly and helpful – it was just amazing – it didn’t take long at all. It was a wonderful wonder, five-star, experience.”

“This Open Enrollment has seen a steady stream of consumers shopping for coverage since day one,” said AHCT CEO Jim Wadleigh. “We’re going to continue reaching out to consumers across the state through events like these enrollment fairs, by directing people to our ten enrollment locations, and through marketing and community outreach.”

"Thank you to Access Health CT and their team of experienced specialists for making themselves accessible to those looking to get covered by the December 22 deadline" said Rep. Joe Courtney. "The surge in enrollment so far in Connecticut and across the country shows clearly the demand for the financial and personal security of knowing your family's health needs are covered. With only three weeks left, it is imperative that eastern Connecticut residents explore their options and choose the best health insurance plan for themselves and their families. This open enrollment period is shorter than in years past, and events like this enrollment fair in New London help bring the experts directly to our communities to answer questions, help customers understand the financial help that is available, and find the best option for them."

If consumers are unable to attend the enrollment fair in New London on Saturday, they can find free in-person help at one of AHCT’s ten enrollment locations, or at the other two enrollment fairs.
