Commonly asked questions that will help you choose the right plan.

ConnectiCare's networks include thousands of doctors, pharmacies and EVERY hospital in Connecticut. Remember, using doctors in our networks can save you money. If you have a plan that lets you get care from an out-of-network doctor, you can do so but you will generally pay more.

To see if your doctor is in our network, click on the “Find a Doctor” link at the bottom of this page.

All ConnectiCare Benefits, Inc. plans through Access Health CT and ConnectiCare SOLO plans include prescription drug benefits. Covered prescription drugs are grouped into sections or tiers.

To see if your drugs are covered, look at the ConnectiCare Freedom Formulary by clicking on the "Find your Prescriptions by Plan" link at the bottom of this page. Then choose the drug list by your plan type.
