The HUSKY Plan offers a full health insurance package for children and teenagers up to age 19, regardless of family income.  HUSKY pays for doctor visits, prescriptions, vision and dental care, and much more.

HUSKY Plus offers additional services for children with special physical health care needs, while mental health and substance abuse treatment services are available through the Connecticut Behavioral Health Partnership.

When your child is enrolled in HUSKY, you'll choose doctors and other medical providers participating in one of our health care options.  For most families, HUSKY is low-cost or free.  But even families with high incomes can get HUSKY health care for children at a group rate.

HUSKY is now serving over 241,000 children and teens in Connecticut's working families -- keeping kids healthy and helping the family budget.   HUSKY also provides health coverage for parents, relative caregivers and pregnant women, depending on income.

Getting further information about HUSKY is easy.  Just call their toll-free number -- 1-877-CT-HUSKY (1-877-284-8759) or visit them online at
