A very public look into Connecticut health insurance premiums

The Connecticut Insurance Department’s prime mission is consumer protection. Helping consumers understand what drives health insurance rates is critical to the larger picture of how we can all work together to address rising health care costs. … Connecticut consumers have an important opportunity to communicate with their health insurers by directly weighing in on the cost of their health insurance and I encourage everyone to participate. The Insurance Department is holding three public hearings over the course of two days – August 3-4 – on proposed rate increases on individual plans for three of the largest carriers in the state – Anthem, ConnectiCare and Aetna.
