Medicaid eligibility for parents/caretakers ends at 160% of the Federal Poverty Level. The Covered Connecticut Program provides no cost health insurance through Access Health CT for parents/caregivers, and their dependents, if they are not eligible for Medicaid but are below 175% of the federal poverty guidelines. Additionally, starting after July 1st 2022, Covered Connecticut will be available for all adults with income below 175% of the federal poverty guidelines.
