Affordable Care Act

Resources from The Connecticut State Library

Access Health CT – Access Health CT is a new health insurance marketplace being developed by the State of Connecticut to satisfy the requirements of the federal Affordable Care Act. Our mission is to increase the number of Connecticut residents who are insured, lower their costs, promote health and eliminate health disparities. Access Health CT will operate at no cost to the state or its taxpayers. – Learn how the health care law affects you at The official site of the Health Insurance Marketplace. See your health insurance choices.

Kaiser Family Foundation – Kaiser is a non-profit, private operating foundation focusing on the major health care issues facing the U.S., as well as the U.S. role in global health policy. Unlike grant-making foundations, Kaiser develops and runs its own research, journalism and communications programs, sometimes in partnership with other non-profit research organizations or major media companies. Kaiser serves as a non-partisan source of facts, information, analysis and journalism for policymakers, the media, the health care community, and the public. Our product is information, always provided free of charge — from the most sophisticated policy research, to basic facts and numbers, to in depth health policy news coverage provided by our news service, KHN, to information young people can use to improve their health or elderly people can use to understand their Medicare benefits.
