Connecticut Office of Healthcare Advocate to hold forum on healthcare costs

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– The Connecticut Office of Healthcare Advocate (OHA) is launching a forum on healthcare affordability called CT Speaks Out! on Thursday night.

OHA says that CT Speaks Out! is a listening series to gather consumer stories on the issue of healthcare affordability.

“The price of healthcare is too high. The ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act has had far too little discussion and attention at a time when we know consumers are being monumentally stressed by rapidly rising costs that are out of their direct control,” said Healthcare Advocate Ted Doolittle in a press release.

To better understand these challenges and to help inform consumers of policy solutions, OHA is partnering with other local advocacy groups for this discussion on healthcare costs.

The next CT Speaks Out! forum will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Community Baptist Church, at 143 Shelton Avenue in New Haven.
