HARTFORD, Conn. – Access Health CT released polling data Wednesday suggesting that the number of uninsured state residents has decreased by 53 percent.

The poll, conducted in July, surveyed 2,564 Access Health CT enrollees and found that 1,367 — or about 53 percent — did not have health insurance prior to signing up for a plan on the exchange. About 46 percent, or 1,176, said they were insured prior to signing up for a plan.

When those numbers are then applied to the total universe of 256,000 current Access Health CT enrollees, Access Health CT estimated that 138,834 of the enrollees were previously uninsured before implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

  1. One and Done.

    Only in government is 53% considered good and never even given context of how much over budget it is. No wonder our kids come out of school dumber than when they went in.
