    Free. Everything is free. The people sponsoring this work for free. Either that, or they are paid with money that grows on trees.

    The exchange is funded by charging “assessments or user fees to health and dental carriers that are capable of offering a qualified health plan through the Exchange” and by federal grants.

    The Access Health CT event is offered to the public free of charge to provide information. One of the goals is to inform uninsured people so they will become insured. Previously, if an uninsured person got seriously ill they would be unable to pay for necessary care. We’ve all been paying for this through higher health insurance premiums and higher costs, as insurers and care providers pass along these costs. Enabling more people to buy health insurance will address this problem as well as improving the overall health of the American populace.

    Just because obama says it’s affordable doesn’t mean it is (and it isn’t).

    The only people who will be sent to the poor house is the middle class (if that segment still exists).

    Only for a few years, then the printing presses stop and CT gets to pay for all of it.

    But, don’t worry….we have a money tree in Hartford.
