We are excited to announce two new state funded health coverage programs for children in 2023. They are State HUSKY A and State HUSKY B for Children. These programs cover uninsured children ages 0-12 with household income between 0-323% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), who do not qualify for regular HUSKY A Medicaid or HUSKY B CHIP coverage because they do not have a qualifying immigration status.
Here’s how to apply (beginning January 1, 2023):
- Phone: Access Health CT at 1‐855‐805‐4325
- If you are deaf or hearing impaired, you may use TTY at 1‐855‐789‐2428 or call with a relay operator
We strongly encourage phone applications in order to get an immediate decision about qualifying for the program. Or, you may also:
- Request a paper application be mailed to you by calling Access Health CT at 1-855-805-4325, or
- Visiting a DSS Service Center in-person (www.ct.gov/dss/fieldoffices).
