Access to Health Care

Our Goal: Ensure all Connecticut residents have knowledge of, and equitable access to, affordable, comprehensive, appropriate, quality health care.

1: Increase the number of traditional and alternative (community- and technology-based) places people can access health care by 2025.
2: Increase adoption of accepted best practices and standards of care among clinical health care providers by 2025.
3: Increase adoption of accepted best practices and standards of care among community health preventive care providers by 2025.
4: Develop a comprehensive, across-the-lifespan, statewide health education framework by 2025.
5: Increase the availability and diversity of primary care providers, community partners, and care management services by 2025, while respecting patients’ rights to privacy and choice.
6: Decrease the number of CT residents who are at risk of spending more than 10% of their net income on health care services and coverage by 2025.
