Public Hearings: Insurance Rate Hikes

Friends and Neighbors,
This week, the Connecticut Insurance Department will hold hearings on proposed rate hikes requested by Connecticut’s largest health insurers — Anthem, ConnectiCare and Aetna. Plans administered by these companies cover thousands of Connecticut workers and their families, and their average requested increases are as high as 28 percent. The Insurance Department has the authority to accept or reject the rates.
The hearings on Wednesday, August 3, and Thursday, August 4, will give you opportunities to testify on how these rate hikes would affect you and your family. 
Please find information on the hearings below:
Anthem Health Plans: Aug. 3, at 9 a.m.
ConnectiCare Insurance Company: Aug. 4, at 9 a.m.
Aetna Insurance Company of CT: Aug. 4, at 1 p.m.
The hearings will be held at 153 Market Street, 7th Floor, Hartford. There is validated parking for visitors using the Morgan Street Garage, 155 Morgan Street, Hartford.
If you are unable to attend, you can also submit public comment on each rate increase request here.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have any concerns about this issue or any other state matter.
