Health care advocates call for outreach workers

HARTFORD, Conn. – Health care advocates told the Access Health CT Board of Directors Thursday that they need to consider hiring a group of outreach workers to help people enroll in health insurance.

The second round of enrollment under the Affordable Care Act begins in mid-November, but advocates say there’s been no steps taken by the board to renew the in-person outreach program.

“The fact that at this date, Access Health CT has no clear public plan for the next enrollment period is very disturbing,” Frances Padilla, president of the Universal Health Care Foundation, told the board Thursday. “We are extremely disappointed that there may be no in-person assistance or navigation services available come Nov. 15.”
