Tonik Connecticut

Tonik Health Insurance from Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield is now available in Connecticut!

Tonik health insurance is now being offered in Connecticut by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. Tonik is a major medical plan that includes not only major medical coverage but also dental and vision. While Tonik plans are available for anyone under the age of 65, they are primarily marketed toward Connecticut’s young, reckless and uninsured, especially ages 19-29.

David R. Fusco, president, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Connecticut states, "Tonik is an important new health benefit product that allows this growing demographic to purchase coverage on their own terms. Since all Tonik plans include medical, dental and vision, it allows young people to buy one policy to meet their needs." Fusco further went on to say, “Anthem conducted market research and asked this consumer group what they were looking for in a health plan. The end result is Tonik, an expansion of our individual product portfolio that makes it easy for young consumers to understand the concepts and terminology associated with health insurance and even apply online."

Tonik offers three unique Tonik plans in CT with three unique deductibles, $1500, $3000, and $5000. All Connecticut Tonik plans even include a $100 co-payment clause for emergency care with the deductible waived. Fusco explains Anthem's concern for the young and uninsured. "Many young adults lose insurance under their parents' coverage when they graduate from college, leaving them uninsured until they find a job. Once they find employment, they may have to wait several months to be eligible for health insurance benefits - if their employer provides health insurance. Still others feel young, healthy and invincible and lack knowledge of health care costs without insurance should they encounter a serious illness or be involved in an accident."
