ALERT: Call the Governor For New Health Insurance Options!
May 8, 2019
LET’S TELL THE GOVERNOR THAT CONNECTICUT NEEDS NEW HEALTH INSURANCE CHOICES
Connecticut has the chance to pass ground-breaking legislation (House Bill 7267 & identical Senate Bill 134) to allow the state to offer new health insurance choices, also known as a public option, for small businesses, nonprofits and individuals. We need to demonstrate to Governor Lamont that state residents need these new choices.

The “public option” is vital for the health of the state’s small businesses and the more than 700,000 people they employ.
