State Representative Phil Young (D)
120th Connecticut House District
I am pleased to share that Covered Connecticut has expanded to allow adults without children to apply for the program and will now provide dental coverage and non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) benefits.
Covered Connecticut has provided health insurance at no cost to more than 800 parents and caretaker relatives in the state who have met all eligibility requirements since it launched in July 2021.
To qualify, Connecticut residents must have a household income up to and including 175% of the federal poverty level and not qualify for HUSKY Health/Medicaid because of income. Residents must be eligible for financial help, including advance premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions, and use 100% of their financial aid. They must also enroll in a silver-level health insurance plan.
