Insurance companies are seeking rate hikes averaging 20%. The CT Insurance Department is holding a hearing Monday, August 15 at 9 am for the public to submit and provide comments. You will be able to ask questions of the carriers and the Insurance Department.

Five of them sent this letter to Governor Lamont in April 2021, threatening to move jobs out of Connecticut if we passed a Public Option. It worked, and the Public Option was scrapped in the final days of the 2021 session.

Our first report, on CEO compensation, showed that those five companies paid their CEOs $137.7 million in the last year. Our second, Games Insurers Play: How Low Will They Go?, explores the tactics and money spent in the 2021 legislative session.

It's time our lawmakers listened to the people of Connecticut, rather than millionaire insurance executives.
