Help for Husky Health Customers Affected By Medicaid UnwindingJune 5, 2023
Access Health CT (AHCT) is working with HUSKY Health customers to ensure they avoid any coverage gaps after the passing of recent Medicaid Unwinding legislation. It is a term the federal government uses to describe the process of resuming the regular annual review of households for Medicaid eligibility after a three-year hiatus during COVID. The eligibility redetermination process resumed on April 1. The Medicaid Unwinding process will be taking place over a 12-month period.
If you remain eligible for HUSKY Health, you will likely be automatically reenrolled. Those who need to act will receive mail with instructions about the next steps. Connecticut residents who are no longer eligible for HUSKY Health may become eligible for other no-or low-cost health coverage available through AHCT. Other options include the Covered Connecticut Program, which provides no-cost coverage for eligible residents or a Qualified Health Plan (QHP) through AHCT, which is often available at a lower cost to residents if they qualify for subsidies. Those that need to choose a new health coverage option may enroll before the end of their Medicaid coverage to avoid a gap in coverage. Those folks will have 120 days to enroll after the loss of Medicaid coverage.
