Generations Family Health Center | Willimantic, Norwich, Putnam and Danielson CT

Do You Need Health Insurance?

Generations Can Help:
Our Health Education Department assists patients and community members with getting insurance coverage. Care Coordinators at Generations are available to meet with both patients and community members who do not have health coverage or have limited health coverage benefits.

Health Insurance Eligibility Screening and Application Services for the Uninsured and Underinsured:

HUSKY
Generations Care Coordinators will assist you with applying for the state funded HUSKY Health program. (HUSKY Health is the State of Connecticut’s public health coverage program for eligible children, parents, relative caregivers, senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, adults without children, and pregnant women.)  Children up to age 19 may qualify regardless of family income level. The Care Coordinators will work with each individual and family to determine which program is a good fit and help to complete the application. They can also grant immediate HUSKY insurance coverage for eligible children, pregnant women and for the HUSKY Limited Family Planning benefits, on behalf of the Department of Social Services.

In addition, Care Coordinators are knowledgeable about other health programs and funds for those without health coverage who may not be eligible for HUSKY Health and will link them to resources for medication assistance, preventive health screening programs or other health services they may need.

PRIVATE INSURANCE-ACCESS HEALTH CT
If you have had a change of life circumstance such as birth of a child, marriage, divorce, loss of or change in employment, etc. and you do not qualify for HUSKY or Medicaid then Generations can help you find a private insurance plan through Access Health CT.
