What defining characteristics make your organization unique?
What are you proudest of about your organization?
We’re local, accessible, and caring. We’ve always focused on the health of Connecticut. It’s this local commitment that sets us apart. When you call, you speak to one of our employees in Farmington. You can walk in and speak to us face-to-face in Manchester, Newington and Bridgeport and soon in Orange. Nearly all of our employees, in fact, are right in your backyard. If you need to reach us, you can come in and see us or contact us online, by email or phone.
What recent milestones or accomplishments have your organization achieved?
(E.g., projects completed, awards and recognitions)
In May 2016, we commemorated 35 years of providing high quality health plans to the people of Connecticut. At the same time we celebrated our anniversary, we expressed our excitement for the future by introducing new branding to reflect a modern, vibrant look.
In October 2016, we opened our flagship retail center in Manchester. Our retail centers provide enrollment and service support as well as educational seminars, events and community activities.
During the month of November, we welcomed CliniSanitas to the state as our partner medical center serving diverse communities who have ConnectiCare plans. Locations include Newington and Bridgeport and all contain a satellite ConnectiCare retail center. A third location will open in Orange in early 2017.
Why does your organization invest in the MetroHartford Alliance?
How does the Alliance’s work align with your goals, values and/or culture?
We invest in the MetroHartford Alliance because we have a shared commitment to the Hartford Region and to the state of Connecticut. We believe in working together to make this a great place to live, work and play. We are headquartered in Farmington so this is our home, and there’s no place we would rather be.
How has your company engaged with the Alliance over the past year or so?
(E.g., events attended, sponsorships, committee involvement)
ConnectiCare has engaged in a variety of activities and events with the Alliance over the past year including the Connecticut Health Council, The Insurance and Financial Services Cluster and sponsoring HYPE’s Tons of Toys.
