Do you know of anyone loosing their Husky coverage? Read more for assistance.

In 2015 the legislature passed legislation to reduce the income limits for HUSKY A parents and caregivers eligibility from 201 percent of the Federal Poverty Level to 155 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Individuals impacted by this legislative change received a year of ‘transitional medical assistance’ from Medicaid up to July 31, 2016. This change requires up to 14,000 parents and caretaker relatives to move from HUSKY A to a plan offered through the exchange or apply for healthcare coverage through a different Medicaid plan in order to avoid a gap in coverage.
