Federal changes may mean parents using Husky can receive premium assistance so the kids can be on their employer plan

Recently passed federal legislation to extend the program, which provides funds for Connecticut's Husky B plan also made some changes.

There is a premium assistance program in the expanded plan. A couple points:

+ Funding can be given to Mom or Dads employer plan to cover the cost of enrolling children in their plan which has lots of providers vs being on Husky with its limited providers.

+ The employer plan must meet certain qualifications such as paying 40% of the premium.

More details will be provided as they become available.
