Cost of CT individual, small group health insurance to rise in 2024

Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kelly, R-Stratford, and Sen. Tony Hwang, R-Fairfield, said the hikes make health insurance less accessible.

“The Lamont administration’s approval of these significant rate hikes comes on the heels of last year’s outrageous double-digit rate hikes. It’s tone deaf to thousands of Connecticut ratepayers whose family budgets have been crushed by inflation,” they said in a joint statement. “Health care continues to be more and more unaffordable in Connecticut.”
