Benefit Details
Connecticut HUSKY Healthcare (SCHIP)
Managing Agency Connecticut

Program Description

The HUSKY Plan is designed to help all children who do not have health insurance. It includes services under the traditional Medicaid program (now known as HUSKY Part A). It also provides brand-new health services for children in higher-income families (called HUSKY Part B). There's also HUSKY Plus--a new coverage option for children who have intensive physical or behavioral health needs. HUSKY gives a special boost to Connecticut's working families. Many parents do not have health coverage for children through work. With HUSKY, Connecticut children are covered.
