Catastrophic plans are available to people younger than 30 years old or to those who have been granted a hardship or affordability exemption from Access Health CT. You are not eligible to get financial help to pay for these plans.
These plans have low monthly premiums, but only protect you once your healthcare costs reach or near annual caps on out-of-pocket healthcare spending. These plans provide the lowest level of coverage. You can’t use premium tax credits to help pay for the monthly premiums for these plans.
When you fill out an application for coverage, you’ll see Catastrophic Plans listed as an option only if you qualify for them. If you don’t qualify, you won’t see them as an option to select.
