Participants in Connecticut's HUSKY program may struggle to see doctors
More than a dozen Connecticut lawmakers have warned that thousands of vulnerable residents in the HUSKY health insurance program could struggle to get healthcare because of what they called premature changes to HUSKY that took effect Feb. 1. The changes are the result of the state ending its relationship with Anthem BlueCare, a longtime HUSKY insurance carrier that did not bid on new HUSKY contracts last year. The state is also ending its traditional Medicaid program, and people in both plans must now switch carriers.
