Long before enactment of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, Connecticut invested in the health of its children and their parents by aligning income eligibility for everyone in a family. This policy was based on knowing that when whole families are insured, children’s access to care improves and parents stay healthy for work and family responsibilities. Just last month, Connecticut’s Gov. Dannel Malloy extolled the quality improvements and cost savings realized through innovative changes to the HUSKY program. Some of this progress will be undone if the Connecticut General Assembly goes along with the governor’s April budget proposal to reduce income eligibility for almost 10,000 low-income parents.
