Anthem to participate in Connecticut healthcare exchange in 2018
Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy announced that Anthem (ANTM) and ConnectiCare Benefits have committed to participate in the state's health insurance exchange for 2018. Approximately 100,000 Connecticut residents purchase coverage through the exchange, the governor said in a statement. "With President Trump and Republicans in Congress attempting to sabotage the American healthcare system, we are incredibly pleased that Anthem and ConnectiCare will be offering health insurance plans in 2018 through Access Health CT," said Governor Malloy. "We appreciate their commitment to the tens of thousands of Connecticut residents who buy coverage though Access Health. I am grateful for the leadership of Lt. Governor Wyman, Commissioner Wade, and Access Health CT CEO Jim Wadleigh for their work to improve the stability of Connecticut's insurance marketplace."
