Area legislator touts Covered Connecticut Program

Danbury State Senator Julie Kushner says families making too much money to qualify for HUSKY, but not enough to afford private health insurance, may be eligible for no-cost health insurance.  The Covered Connecticut Program started Friday, offering private health and dental insurance to people caught in the middle.  The first-in-the-nation waiver program will provide coverage to 31,000 low-income, working people.  There are no premiums, no co-pays or deductibles for eligible residents. The program combines Medicaid with state support and resources provided by the Affordable Care Act. Covered CT Plans are offered by Anthem and ConnectiCare.
