Health Insurance Advance Initiative

Enhance the Value of Health Insurance for all CT Citizens

Funded by The Connecticut Health Foundation

In this 5-year Health Insurance Advance strategic initiative, HDI has proposed and completed the following:

  • Complete research documenting pervasive Health Insurance Literacy (HIL) deficits especially among people of color
  • In November and December 2016,  host a planning webinar for the Equal Coverage to Care coalition, and a a 25-organization in-person retreat.
  • Set the HI Simplification Policy Agenda
  • Collaborate with Access Health CT to incorporate the HIL survey and education into the pre-open enrollment process. See the Survey Results.
  • Disseminate HIL

Starting in 2020, HDI plans to pursue legislative/regulatory action as part of HIS advocacy efforts
