State Sen. Tony Hwang (R-134th) is hosting an informational forum on Connecticut’s proposed health insurance and long-term care rate increases on Aug. 2 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Sacred Heart University’s Schine Auditorium. The event, which is free and open to the public, will include a panel discussion featuring insurance and health care policy experts and a Q & A session.
“Average increases on individual and small group employer plans in Connecticut could be as high as 28 percent among plans that cover thousands of workers and their families,” Hwang said. “That’s outrageous, that’s unaffordable, and that’s why people need to know how to weigh in.”
Public hearings on the potential hikes will take place in Hartford on Aug. 3 and 4.
