Say “No” to Taking Health Care from Low Income Parents!


The state budget crisis has put HUSKY A parents’ health insurance coverage on the chopping block again.  HUSKY A is the state’s Medicaid program that provides health care coverage for low-income parents and their children.

If this all sounds familiar, it’s because in 2015 over 10,000 HUSKY parents were cut, and we stopped even more cuts last year.

This will impact 9,500 parents with incomes between 138% to 155% of the federal poverty level.

  • That means that a family of three who makes over $2,350 a month will lose coverage.

For many of these families, buying private coverage Access Health CT (the state exchange) will be out of reach, even with subsidies.

Even worse, there are other proposed cuts to HUSKY programs.

At a time when HUSKY/Medicaid programs are under threat from Washington, DC, we can’t allow the state’s budget crisis to harm families even more.

Call your state legislators and tell them NO to HUSKY Cuts!

It is important that we all speak up and tell our policymakers that we won’t tolerate cuts to anyone’s health care, not from DC or Hartford.

Thank you for standing up to protect the care of all Connecticut residents.
