HUSKY Health and Medicaid


The Department of Social Services administers many programs designed to assist Connecticut residents in meeting their health and medical care needs.

HUSKY Health encompasses Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. HUSKY Health offers medical coverage to eligible children, parents, relative caregivers, elders, individuals with disabilities, adults without dependent children and pregnant women. The program provides a comprehensive health care benefit package, including preventive care, primary care, specialist visits, hospital care, behavioral health services, dental services and prescription medications. 

HUSKY Health encompasses:  

- HUSKY A: Medicaid for children/parents/relative caregivers/pregnant women

- HUSKY B: Non-Medicaid Children’s Health Insurance Program

- HUSKY C: Medicaid for the Aged/Blind/Disabled, also known as Title 19. HUSKY C includes Long-Term Care Services and Supports (LTSS). This includes programs that help provide home care or other supports for people who want to live independently. To learn more about Husky Long-Term Care Services and Supports, please visit the Health and Home Care page of the CT Department of Social Services website.
