HealthPass Adds CareConnect

HealthPass New York will start offering plans from North Shore-LIJ CareConnect Health Insurance Co. to small employers. New York’s homegrown small-business private insurance exchange now includes six CareConnect plans, available to companies with between two and 50 eligible employees. Initial coverage options include one Platinum, one Gold, two Silver and two Bronze plans for HealthPass members. CareConnect is available only to employees who work or live in New York City, Long Island or Westchester County. HealthPass last added a new insurer, Health Republic, at the start of 2014. It dropped two insurers in recent years: EmblemHealth in 2013, after the insurer terminated most of its small group plans, and Easy Choice last year. The foundering former Atlantis Health Plan, which wasrebranded as Easy Choice  in 2011, withdrew all products from the New York market as of Dec. 31, 2014.
