HUSKY Health Insurance

Does Your Child Have Health Insurance?

Connecticut offers low-cost or free coverage! 

Healthy kids do well in school! Connecticut’s HUSKY Health program, for example, pays for doctor visits (including physical exams), prescriptions, emergency care, vision and dental care, mental health care, special health care needs, and more. It's for children under age 19 in families of all incomes.

There are two parts to the HUSKY Health program for children:

  1. HUSKY A (or Medicaid), for children in families with limited incomes. Parents, relative caregivers, and pregnant women may also be eligible.
  2. HUSKY B (or Children’s Health Insurance Program) for children in families with higher incomes.
