Access Health CT, Connecticut's state health insurance exchange, says it has launched the nation’s first mobile application for an HIX.The agency says the free app, available for both Apple iOS devices and Android deices, offers nearly all the functionality of its website.

The app allows consumers to browse anonymously, determine potential eligibility for financial assistance, and view plan information, including all of the plan details and documents that are available on the website. Consumers can also create an account in the app, and use that same account to access information and apply for coverage from their computer.

Once consumers have created an account and applied for financial assistance on their computer, they can log-in to their account on the app to review summary information on their household enrollments, review uploaded documents, and even submit verification document using the camera feature on their phone.

“During the 2014 open enrollment period, 25 percent of consumers accessed our website from a mobile device,” said Kevin Counihan, Access Health CT CEO. ”This app will make it much easier for consumers to compare and shop on-the-go and will be another tool for our residents, brokers and outreach workers to assist people in their communities.”
