How to Qualify
Connecticut children and their parents or a relative caregiver; and pregnant women may be eligible for HUSKY A (also known as Medicaid), depending on family income.
Uninsured children under age 19 in higher-income households may be eligible for HUSKY B (also known as the Children’s Health Insurance Program). Depending on specific income level, family cost-sharing applies.
[Note: When looking at the HUSKY family income guidelines, please keep in mind that we may not count some of your income and may also deduct certain expenses. The best thing to do is apply and let us determine your family’s eligibility.]
