CROPHwang 2017-06-14 Insurance Rate Hike Testimony 15 of 17

Health insurer Anthem is requesting an average increase of 33.8 % for policies marketed both on and off the state exchange, Access Health CT.

Yes, 33.8 %.

Health insurer ConnectiCare has requested an average increase of 17.5 % for policies sold exclusively on the exchange.

Yes, 17.5 %.

I have spoken out repeatedly against these outrageous, unaffordable rate hikes, and so can you…this week.

Public comments on the rate hike proposals are being accepted through Friday.

  • Send me your comments at Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.gov .  Include your name and town.
  • Comments can be as brief as you like.  (Example:  “NO to rate hikes!”)
  • I will get them to the State Department of Insurance by close of business Friday.

Please spread the word to other concerned ratepayers!

Thank you.
