ACCESS HEALTH CT insurance exchange Jason Madrak 09-06-2013

Jason Madrak, Chief Marketing Officer for Access Health CT – the entity charged with enrolling Connecticut residents under the state’s new insurance program – was a guest on CTV14′s “Town Talk,” hosted by Brenda Sullivan.

By Brenda Sullivan | HTNP News Editor

As host of the CTV14 governmental affairs program, “Town Talk,” I recently interviewed Chief Marketing Officer Jason Madrak of Access Health CT – this is the entity that is charged with enrolling Connecticut residents under the new statewide insurance plan as part of the country’s Affordable Care Act.

You can watch my interview with Mr. Madrak online by clicking on this link http://www.ctv14.com and then clicking on the Programming tab. In this drop-down menu, choose VOD archives. On the next page, use the drop-down menu on the left (All Folders) and choose “Town Talk” from the bottom of that list.

In addition to the interview with Access Health CT, there’s a very informative “Town Talk” interview with Windham State Rep. Susan Johnson that also simplifies some of the nuts and bolts of what’s on the horizon.

Below are comments from Access Health CT Chief Executive Officer Kevin Counihan, issued Sept. 18, on getting ready to launch the sign-up program on Oct. 1, 2013.

This first wave of enrollment will continue until Jan. 1, 2014.

You may have noticed an increase in TV ads urging you to sign up for a company’s insurance plan. You may want to know that unless you are enrolled through Access Health CT, you will NOT be entitled to subsidies (in some cases, 100 percent subsidies).

Son of an African king, Venture Smith became the first black man to document his capture from Africa and life as an American slave and successful black freeman in Connecticut.  And he has a local connection.

Venture Smith’s grave is one of the original sites on the Connecticut Freedom Trail.  Events at the various Freedom Trail sites are held throughout Connecticut in the month of September. To read more about the trail, visit the Web site at http://ctfreedomtrail.org
