“The beginning of enrollment today is great news for individuals, families, and small businesses who will be able to sign up for new health insurance options with coverage beginning on January 1, 2014. This is a tremendous step forward in increasing access to quality, affordable health care. I thank everyone who is working hard to ensure health care reform works well in Connecticut.
