Connecticut, like other states, launched an online health exchange -- Access Health CT -- where residents can shop for and purchase health insurance. There could be new opportunities for the unemployed or uninsured to receive health insurance. Here, we gather our coverage of changes under the new federal law.

Lawmakers continue to debate health care policy in Washington, and millions wonder if they’ll be insured in the future.

This hour, we consider the impact here at home.

Plus, WNPR’s Harriet Jones will join us to talk about Aetna’s plans to move its headquarters out of Hartford.

And later, we examine health care and the training American doctors receive with physician Dr. Rachel Pearson, author of No Apparent Distress: A Doctor’s Coming-of-Age on the Front Lines of American Medicine.

What changes do you think should be made to improve our health care system? Are you worried about staying insured?
