ACTION ALERT: There has been progress, and now we need you to call legislative leaders to restore HUSKY A!

HUSKYARestore-May7The issue
13,000 low income working parents with HUSKY A (Medicaid) health care coverage will lose their coverage on January 1, 2019 if legislators don’t act by midnight on May 9.

The current situation
The latest versions of both parties’ budget proposals fully fund the Medicare Savings Program (MSP).  MSP helps low-income elderly individuals and people with disabilities on Medicare pay their out-of-pocket costs and Medicare Part B premiums.

While neither budget restores the cuts to HUSKY A parents, today there is some indication that some legislators have been listening! (See this article)

On Saturday, advocates held a press event to highlight the threats to Medicaid coverage and spoke to legislative leaders about HUSKY A cuts.  Check out video coverage here or read about it here.

This is promising, but time is running out and we need calls to leadership of the House and Senate now!  Add your voice to this fight!

Please contact these six legislative leaders (or as many as you can) at the below phone numbers or email addresses and tell them:

We Need Full Restoration of HUSKY A NOW!”

For more information, including information about the impact of the HUSKY A cut in every town and city in the state, see this brief from CT Voices for Children.
