Access Health CT enrollment deadline, help session in Danbury

One last enrollment help sessions are being held in Danbury by Access Health CT.  The state's online marketplace is hosting these to provide information about Healthcare Reform and explain what financial help is available for residents.  Volunteer Mary Levine of the United Church of Christ Health Care Ministry says counselors will be there to walk people through the enrollment process. 


Today's session in Danbury is from 1 to 6pm at Danbury Public Library. 


Consumers must sign up for coverage or receive an exemption from coverage by today to avoid a tax penalty.  For those not meeting today's enrollment deadline, the federal government will assess a penalty of 1 percent of gross household income over the federal income tax filing threshold or $95 per individual, whichever amount is greater.


After today, residents will only be able to obtain coverage under these plans under special circumstances, such as marriage, divorce, birth, adoption or loss of insurance coverage from an employer.
