Advocates Express Concern About 2019 Health Insurance Rate Filings

Friday, July 20, 2018


MERIDEN, CT -- Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut President Frances G. Padilla expressed concern about recently released health insurance rate fillings for 2019 after reviewing the summary. “Cumulative rate increases over the past few years far outpace the ability of small business and individuals to keep up,” said Padilla. 

The Foundation is reviewing the filings now and will be active advocating for consumers in the rate review process. “These rates could have been lower if there was not uncertainty in Washington,” Padilla added.

Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut's mission is to serve as a catalyst for residents and communities in shaping a democratic health system that provides universal access to quality, affordable health care and promotes health in Connecticut. We believe that health care is a fundamental right and that our work is part of a broader movement for social and economic justice.
