Fishing Partnership Chosen by Loomis Chaffee School for Annual Charity Hockey Game

We were thrilled to learn of the Varsity Hockey team’s choice to support us in memory of Joseph Birarelli, a lobsterman and father of a LC Alumnus. Check back for updates on how much they’ve raised since donations are still being sent!

Our Fishing Partnership Navigators can help you understand your insurance options and find a health plan that works for your family.

  • Health insurance is more affordable—it could even be free
  • You can’t be turned down for pre-existing conditions
  • All plans cover doctor visits, hospitalization, maternity care, emergency room care, and prescription drugs

If you get married, have a child, or your income goes down, these changes could affect your health plan. Got questions? Need help?
