The state is over extended. There's no excuse for people in New Canaan to have access to Husky and Charter Oak.

I'm not in New Canaan - but if their income is the below the mark why do you care if they're in an apt in new Canaan or anywhere. It costs money to move ya know.
Police the system ok- but raise the rates 33% across the board? Not cool in my opinion

I'm not talking about people in apartments. I'm talking about people that own homes.

Ok.. So forgetting new Canaan . You think it's ok to up premiums 33%? On folks scraping by? I can only imagine the protests if a union were going to have their premiums go up 33% a month.

Charter Oak is open to everyone. Lots of small business owners who can't otherwise get insurance or people with pre-existing conditions use the insurance. Yes, 33% is a lot and I am not happy about it. I wish I had another option but as a cancer survivor, I don't.

No Seymour. I don't think it's remotely ok that premiums have increased 33%. I think that the state needs to reassess the guidelines of who and who should not be eligible for the program. If premiums need to increase 33%, it indicates that the state can't adequately subsidize the program. They need to pare down the number of participants.

I don't have any options either with preexisting conditions, and low income.
It's not like insurance companies run this anymore either. The state took it over a year ago.

I wonder if the new insurance exchange that Connecticut will have to set up under the affordable care act will eliminate the need for Charter Oak?

Maybe- but that not till 2014. I think I woulda rather have the deductible go up vs the monthly B.slap Hartford just doled out.
