Access Health CT Announces July And August Enrollment Fairs To Assist HUSKY Health Customers Affected By Medicaid Unwinding
These free, in-person events will take place in Bridgeport, East Hartford, Middletown and Torrington
HARTFORD, Conn. (June 27, 2023) — Access Health CT (AHCT) today announced it will host four free, in-person enrollment fairs in July and August to help HUSKY Health enrollees who have been affected by recent legislation. The events will take place in Bridgeport, East Hartford, Middletown and Torrington. HUSKY Health is Connecticut’s Medicaid program.
Medicaid Unwinding is a term the federal government is using to describe the process of resuming reviewing households for Medicaid eligibility after a three-year hiatus during the Public Health Emergency. The eligibility redetermination process resumed April 1.
Connecticut residents that remain eligible for HUSKY Health will likely be automatically reenrolled; those that 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. Those who need to choose a new health coverage option will have 120 days to enroll after the loss of Medicaid coverage but can attend an event during the month their Medicaid coverage is ending to avoid a gap in coverage.
HUSKY Health customers who need assistance with the process or have questions can get help from an Enrollment Specialist at these enrollment fairs:
- Torrington: Wednesday, July 12 at New Opportunities, located at 62 Commercial Boulevard, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Register here.
- East Hartford: Saturday, July 29 at East Hartford Library, located at 840 Main Street, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Register here.
