Amazon Holiday Giving Tour Comes to Fair Haven

Last week I joined elected officials, community leaders and volunteers to welcome the Amazon Holiday Giving Tour to New Haven at the offices of Junta for Progressive Action. The 53-foot Holiday Giving Truck delivered $15,000 in needed supplies and toys for families from Puerto Rico relocating to New Haven due to Hurricane Maria.

New Haven has welcomed some 600 evacuees from Puerto Rico whose lives were forever changed following the devastating September hurricane.

If you'd like to learn more or help local organizations assisting people affected by Hurricane Maria, contact Junta for Progressive Action or the Fair Haven Community Health Center.

Before you enroll:

Make sure you know what you need from your plan in 2018.
Do you go to the doctor a lot or have prescription drugs? If you have chronic conditions or go to the doctor a lot, you might want to pick a plan that has lower out-of-pocket costs. Get more shopping tips online.

Check the fine print of the plans when you shop and compare; don't just look at the monthly payment (or "premium").
Not sure what deductibles, copays, and provider networks are? Get more information here.

Don't do this alone--use Access Health Connecticut's tools and support.
Access Health Connecticut has a plan comparison tool that makes it easy to pick a plan that meets your needs.
