DSS: Connecticut Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan


Connecticut Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan


 
Please note, the Connecticut Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan has been extended and will be ending January 31, 2014.
 
Now is the time to start thinking about your health coverage for next year. Connecticut Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (CT PCIP) has been extended one month, and coverage will expire January 31, 2014.  CT PCIP will not pay for covered services that you receive after that date.  This means you must enroll in a new health coverage option no later than January 15, 2014, for coverage to be effective on February 1, 2014.  You will be able to apply for new coverage through Access Health CT, Connecticut’s Health Insurance Marketplace. 
 
Access Health CT will help you shop for health coverage that meets your needs and fits your budget.  Visit www.AccessHealthCT.com to learn more about the health insurance options available.  Some current CT PCIP enrollees will qualify for Medicaid, beginning January 1.  Please follow this link for a fact sheet on Medicaid eligibility expansion.  Open enrollment through Access Health CT began October 1, 2013, and coverage can start as early as January 1, 2014.  You can also call the Access Health CT Contact Center at 1-855-805-HEALTH (1-855-805-4325).  TTY users should call 1-855-789-2428.
