Make Sure You Stay Covered

Some Connecticut residents had their HUSKY Health coverage extended during the pandemic. If you are part of this group, the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) may contact you to complete a renewal form to see if you qualify for HUSKY Health coverage for the next year. What’s the best way to prepare for your HUSKY Health renewal? Make sure your address and phone number are up to date with Access Health CT and/or DSS. Consider providing your email address, opting in to receive text messages, and selecting paperless delivery for important notifications. Click here for more information.

Remember, whether you qualify for HUSKY Health, a Qualified Health Plan or programs like Covered CT, you can shop for health and dental insurance coverage through Access Health CT. There are full coverage options available at little or no cost.

    Tips for a Smooth Renewal

    • Make sure you know what you need to do to complete your renewal, and when. Don’t let the deadline catch you by surprise; make sure your renewal is on track and you have time to seek help if you need it.
    • If you have preferred doctors, healthcare providers or prescription drugs, check that they are included in your plan. You can enter a doctor’s name or zip code when you apply through Access Health CT, as well as any prescription drugs you want to make sure are covered. When comparing health plans, you will be able to see which plans include your preferred doctors and prescription drugs.
    • Schedule time with your broker or find a broker who can help recommend a plan for you, for free. You can search for a broker in your area who speaks your language or come to one of our Enrollment Fairs where we always have brokers available. Already have a broker?

    Get the most out of your plan

    Now that you are covered, make sure you choose a doctor and use your plan to stay healthy. Learn more about your benefits and your insurance company — your insurance company can help explain your plan benefits, send or replace your member ID card, help you submit a claim, and more.

    Pay Your Premium

    After you enroll, your insurance company will send you a bill with directions on when your first payment is due and how to pay it. To make sure you have access to your coverage, you should pay your premium bill as soon as possible. Always pay your monthly bill on time to avoid coverage delays or lapses. Enrolling in and paying your monthly fee (premium) to maintain coverage means you can start using some healthcare services right away at no or little additional cost to you.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What if I no longer qualify for HUSKY Health?

    If you no longer qualify for HUSKY Health, you can shop for health and/or dental coverage through Access Health CT. There are full coverage options available at little or no cost. Contact Access Health CT to find out what you may qualify for:

    • Online
    • Over the phone at 1-855-805-4325 (If you are deaf or hearing impaired, you may use the TTY at 1-855-789-2428 or contact us with a relay operator)
    2. Will I pay more in 2024? If so, why?

    You might. Your monthly premium payments for a plan can change from year-to-year, but so can your household needs. That is why it is so important for you to look at your plan options —you may see cost savings by picking a different plan.

    • If you are renewing into the same plan, changes to your family size, tax household, annual income, age, or address could make your monthly premium payment go up or down.
    3. What should I consider when choosing a health insurance plan?

    Keep in mind how much you use medical services and which prescriptions or doctors you want included. Don’t just look at the monthly payments; look at your out-of-pocket costs, too.

    4. How is financial help calculated?

    Financial help is based on a sliding scale and is determined by household income and where you fall on the federal poverty line for your household size.  Eligible individuals and households will pay no more than 8.5% of their household income towards the cost of the selected plan(s).
