CT insurance department pressured to reject double-digit rate hikes

Mike Smith is considered lucky. When, at age 21, he discovered a tumor the size of a golf ball on his neck, he had health coverage and a support system to support him.

“I was lucky because it was only stage 2A when I was diagnosed,” said Smith, now 35. “I was lucky that my mom worked a job that provided quality health insurance. Otherwise, I would still be out of nearly millions of dollars in medical care needed to keep me alive. But we must not leave the health and financial fortunes of our family, friends and neighbors to chance.”
