Health Insurance Eligibility Screening and Application Services for the Uninsured and Underinsured
Generations Community Health Workers 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 Community Health Workers will work with each individual and family to determine which program is a good fit and help to complete the application. When your application is complete, you will know if you qualified for Husky or received a tax credit to help pay for your private insurance premium.
In addition, Community Health Workers are knowledgeable about other health programs and funds for those without health coverage who may not be eligible for HUSKY Health, and can link you to resources for medication assistance, preventive health screening programs or other health services you may need.
