State HUSKY A and B now offered through the Department of Social Services for eligible non-citizen children

There are now more ways than ever to enroll children in health coverage. Starting January 1, 2023, Connecticut is offering two new state-funded health coverage programs for children. These programs provide coverage for uninsured children ages 0-12 who cannot enroll in regular HUSKY A (Medicaid) or HUSKY B (Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)) because they are undocumented immigrants. You can find the annual and monthly income limits on the Department of Social Services’ (DSS) website under How to Qualify. Share this information with your friends and neighbors, so that together we can build a healthier Connecticut.

For more information about these programs, visit the Department of Social Services website for Frequently Asked Questions.

How to Enroll

You must enroll by phone or paper application; there is no online enrollment at this time. We strongly encourage applying by phone to get an immediate decision about qualifying for HUSKY coverage.
