OP-ED | Who Will Celebrate Labor Day In 2034?

by Leo Canty and James Hughes | August 29, 2014 8:00am

For more than 100 years workers and their unions have designated a day to parade and celebrate labor, working people, the jobs they do and advances they have made. Over that time, the nature of that work has transformed dramatically from farms and factories to offices and cubicles.

Those changes were hard on many as they fell by the wayside in the struggle to keep up with the need to improve skills and fit into the next level. But as hard as it was for some, the transition we will all soon face will be much faster and wilder and more difficult to keep up with than most will ever imagine.

OP-ED | Doesn’t ‘Truth in Advertising’ Apply to Health Insurance Companies?

by Sarah Darer Littman | August 8, 2014 8:00am

Last year, I was one of the many small business owners and sole proprietors who had their health insurance cancelled, as the big insurers used the specter of approaching health care reform to clear their rolls. My brother and my boyfriend, also self-employed, were in the same boat.

I started looking for new insurance on Connecticut’s health insurance exchange, Access Health CT, but once I realized I wasn’t going to qualify for a subsidy, I decided to buy my insurance on the private market, because there were more options available.

After looking at various available plans, I decided to go with ConnectiCare, because I could get a plan that was comparable to my previous insurance coverage, and offered dental, which my previous insurance didn’t.

Before I signed up, I checked two things carefully: that my current doctors were in-network, and that all my current medications were listed in the formulary as being covered.

Everything checked out, so I bought the insurance.
