Connecticut: AccessHealth CT announces free events to help Husky Health Clients impacted by Medicaid Unwinding

via Access Health CT:

HARTFORD, Conn. (Feb. 20, 2024) — Access Health CT (AHCT) today announced it will host two free, in-person enrollment fairs in February and March to help HUSKY Health enrollees who have been affected by the Medicaid Unwinding process. The events will take place in New Britain and Stamford.

Medicaid Unwinding is the process of resuming the review of households for Medicaid eligibility after a three-year break during the Public Health Emergency. The eligibility redetermination process resumed April 1, 2023 and HUSKY Health clients will be notified when it is their turn to enroll. The process will end March 31. HUSKY Health is Connecticut’s Medicaid program.

Connecticut residents who remain eligible for HUSKY Health will likely be automatically reenrolled. Those who need to take action will receive mail with instructions.

Connecticut residents 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), often available at a lower cost to residents if they qualify for subsidies.

HUSKY Health clients who need assistance with the process or have questions can get help from an enrollment specialist at these upcoming enrollment fairs:

  • New Britain: Wednesday, Feb. 21 at Alumni Hall, Central Connecticut State University, located at 65 Ella Grasso Boulevard, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Register here.
  • Stamford: Saturday, March 14 at Stamford Government Center, located at 888 Washington Boulevard, Fourth Floor, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Register here.
