A public hearing on the CT insurance rate hike proposal is set for August 15

People will have the opportunity to consider the request of the insurance companies to increase the cost of private health plans next year by about 20.4%.

The Department of Insurance of the government has arranged for people to listen on Aug. 15 from 9 am. The hearing, which is usually held in government offices in the city of Hartford, will be held at the Legislative Office Building on Capitol Avenue in Hartford. The event was moved to accommodate what is expected to be a bigger than usual event.
