Connecticut reaching out to thousands of the uninsured
Hartford Courant, February 25, 2008
Connecticut's first universal health insurance plan promising coverage to thousands of uninsured residents will begin taking enrollees in July 2008. The Charter Oak Health Insurance plan will insure those whose employers do not provide healthcare coverage and those who do not qualify for the state's HUSKY Medicaid or Medicare plan. Over the next four years, about 32,000 uninsured Connecticut residents will be eligible for the plan.
