State Spotlight: Connecticut’s Health Insurance Exchange

Connecticut State Flag
Before the SCOTUS ruling, health plan C-level executives and government programs and policy officials could only discuss what their exchange strategy should be, as the future of exchanges was uncertain. Since SCOTUS upheld the PPACA, more departments are joining the conversation as health insurance exchanges move from strategy to implementation.

At the 2nd Annual Health Insurance Exchange Congress, you will learn how to prepare for the opportunities and challenges created by health insurance exchanges. Hear from states that are at different points of preparedness to better understand what they think is most important.

If you are still strategizing how to build an exchange strategy, the Special Advisor to the Governor of Connecticut will share how the state made up for lost time in its development of its exchange in the State Spotlight: Connecticut.

Presentation: Road to Development: From a Late Start to a Leading State from Jeannette DeJesús, Special Advisor to the Governor, Office of Health Care Reform & Innovation

The Connecticut Health Exchange held its first board meeting in late 2011, with the mission to create an innovative, competitive marketplace that empowers consumers to choose the health plan and providers that give them the best value. Although they started slowly, Connecticut is making up time with regular meetings focused on different aspects, such as QHPs, SHOP exchanges and defining Navigators.
