How Does Your Health Plan Stack Up? Check Out CT’s 2016 Consumer Report Card 

By Lynne Ide

2016-cid-report-cardHere at Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut, we hear a lot of stories from people about the cost and quality of their health care plans.

Most of the time, people struggle with these problems in a vacuum and never get a chance to find out how their experience compares with others – or if anything can be done about the problems they face.

Now there’s a tool that may help.

The Connecticut Insurance Department released its 2016 Consumer Report Card today and it is more comprehensive and user-friendly.  You can check it out here (there is a PDF version, online flipbook version, and a text-only version).

So, check it out.  Find out how your health plan stacks up and share the Report Card with others.

As the old saying goes – Information is power.
