Access Health CT is the health insurance marketplace for the U.S. state of Connecticut. Access Health CT will enable people and small businesses to purchase health insurance at federally subsidized rates.

Background[edit]

Health insurance exchanges were established as a part of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to enable individuals to purchase health insurance in state-run marketplaces.[1] In this legislation, states could choose to establish their own health insurance exchanges; if they choose not to do so, the federal government would run one for the state.[1]
