A new, special open enrollment period is available for the 200,000 uninsured Connecticut residents to get health care coverage during the coronavirus crisis. 

Andrea Ravitz is with Access Health CT.

“For the time being this special open enrollment is open until April 2. But the closer we get to that deadline, I think you know we will have conversations not only with the governor’s office but with our two participating carriers to determine if there is going to be an extension,” said Andrea Ravitz with Access Health CT

In New York, uninsured residents can sign up for qualified health plans through the New York State of Health until April 15, for coverage effective on April 1.
