The Challenge

Access Health CT is the Connecticut Health State Market created by the Connecticut Legislature to satisfy requirements of the federal Affordable Care Act.

A comprehensive multi-agency integrated marketing effort was started, from consumer awareness to education and engagement to enrollment, all within an aggressive 10-month timeframe under the watchful eye of state and federal policymakers.

What we did

We developed a broad spectrum of marketing tools and tactics that included a multicultural and bilingual media campaign.

The spanish TV campaign "Mercado de Salud" (Health Marketplace), included long and short format video content.

Half-hour shows for consumers and for small business owners; inserts in Univision's morning show "Despierta Hatford", and inserts for "El Show de Analeh", a 15-year Hispanic affairs show in CT.

A series of interactive engagement tools on the Exchange's educational website also gave consumers the help they needed to prepare themselves for enrollment. All tools were highlighted in a television campaign.

Success

Marketing Strategy Delivers Results

A Harvard case study was created to highlight how Integrated Marketing helped to launch Connecticut's Health Insurance Exchange.


The case featuring the success of Access Health CT will be taught as part of the curriculum at the Harvard Business School and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
