About Us

At Access Health Connecticut (AHCT), Individuals, Families & Small Businesses can shop, compare and enroll in quality healthcare plans from brand-name insurance companies. And it’s the only place where you could qualify for financial help, to lower your costs.

AHCT is Connecticut’s official health insurance marketplace. It was established to meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (known as Obamacare), and created to help people shop and enroll in the health insurance plan that is right for their needs.

Based on their annual income, individuals can see what type of Financial Help is available to help them buy health insurance.

All plans offered through Access Health CT include coverage for important Essential Health Benefits like preventive services such as Annual Checkups, Prescription Drugs, Lab Tests, and many others.

Connecticut residents can use Access Health CT to help them compare insurance options, estimate costs and choose the best plan for them and their families. By filing out an application, people can also check their eligibility for the state’s healthcare program Medicaid/Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
