HUSKY HEALTH PLANS
The HUSKY Program is the State of Connecticut’s
public health coverage program for eligible
children, parents, relative caregivers, senior
citizens, individuals with disabilities, adults
without children, and pregnant women within the
income guidelines. Children up to age 19 may
qualify regardless of family income level.
As of January 1, 2014, the HUSKY Program expanded
to include HUSKY C.
For most families and individuals, HUSKY coverage
is free or low-cost. Even families with high
incomes can get HUSKY Health benefits for children
at an unsubsidized group rate.
