Providers News and Updates

With the PHE unwinding, State Medicaid Programs will once again check member eligibility for Medicaid that had been suspended during COVID-19 and the resulting Public Health Emergency.  Many members will not renew automatically and will need to re-apply and submit documentation to remain on HUSKY Health.   The Department of Social Services wants to make sure that HUSKY members don’t lose coverage — especially those with high-risk conditions and most in need of continued health services.   And CTDHP certainly doesn’t want members who are unaware of the re-application to lose HUSKY coverage, and thus potentially stop getting needed health services.

Right now, providers can help prepare for the renewal process and educate HUSKY Health members about the upcoming changes. This includes making sure that members have updated their HUSKY Health contact information and creating awareness about the importance to act when they receive a letter.
