FARMINGTON, CT (October 24, 2017) – ConnectiCare has announced its participation in Connecticut’s Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) exchange, offered through Access Health CT, in 2018.

We are pleased to offer plans to small businesses statewide through Access Health CT,” said Eric Galvin, President and Chief Operating Officer at ConnectiCare. “We are Connecticut’s local health plan and remain committed to the state and serving our members – because we are serving our families, friends and neighbors.

Through the state’s SHOP exchange, Access Health CT offers health insurance options to employers with 50 or fewer full-time employees. In 2017, there was only one insurance carrier offering plans through the SHOP exchange.

“We’re excited to have ConnectiCare on board as another option for small businesses to provide healthcare coverage for their employees in 2018,” said Jim Wadleigh, CEO at Access Health CT.
