Verification Documents

Written by Access Health CT | Published January 29th, 2022 | Updated January 29th, 2022

When you apply for health coverage through Access Health CT, you may be asked to provide additional information to verify what you included in your application. If we need any of these verification documents, you will be notified during the application OR by letter from Access Health CT after you submit your application. 

If you received a letter from us asking you to submit documents to confirm your eligibility for healthcare coverage, that means we need to hear from you as soon as possible! This letter will tell you what kind of information we need – such as proof of income, identity, citizenship, or immigration status. Check your mailbox, or sign in and check your online inbox.

Even if you have enrolled and started using your plan, you may lose your coverage or financial help if we don’t receive the documents we need to verify your information.

How long do I have to submit my verification documents?

The notice we send you will include your deadline date to submit your verification document. Your deadline will depend on the type of verification you must complete:

  • For Special Enrollment Periods: You must provide proof of your Qualifying Life Event within 30 days, and you may need to send additional information within 90 days if you are asked. For more information about Special Enrollment Period Verification click here

  • All other verifications: You generally have up to 90 days from the date you completed enrollment to send in the documents Access Health CT requested. However, it is important to resolve open verification issues as soon as possible.

What Should I Do if my Documents Fail the Verification Process?

If we can’t confirm what you attested to in your application from the document you submit, then we will alert you that the document failed verification, and we will request that you re-submit your documentation again. If this occurs, you’ll receive a notice from us with the subject line “Verification Failed.” If help is needed, our Call Center can help advise you why the documents failed and what you need to send in. You may need to update your application with the latest information.  In order to avoid any impact to your coverage or financial help, you must take action.
