MIDDLETOWN, Conn., November 1, 2017: Open Enrollment begins today for people seeking health insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act. Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) encourages anyone in need of health insurance to enroll before the December 22 deadline to be covered in 2018.
The Affordable Care Act has transformed health care in America, providing access to people who in the past had gone without coverage. CHC has enrolled thousands of patients since the program began offering health insurance in 2014.
Coverage is available through the state’s official health insurance market place, Access Health CT. CHC’s Access to Care team is available at all its locations statewide to assist with the enrollment process. The window to enroll is shorter than in past years, with eight weeks of open enrollment: Nov. 1-Dec. 22. Anyone enrolling during this time will have coverage effective in January 2018.
“At CHC we believe health care is a right, not a privilege,” said Mark Masselli, CHC CEO and Founder. “I urge everyone eligible to seek coverage under the Affordable Care Act. We’re here to help in any way we can to ensure all are able to realize a value fundamental to a fair and just society – health care coverage.”
