A CALL TO ACTION: SAVE HUSKY COVERAGE NOW – MAY 21, 2015

The Governor and legislative leaders are negotiating a final budget deal now.
The Governor is pushing for cuts in HUSKY (Medicaid) that will eliminate coverage for 30,000+ people.  The Appropriations Committee restored the cutsWe need your help to keep this important health care coverage in the state budget.
These cuts are a move backwards for Connecticut.  Our state has expanded coverage for low-income families and pregnant women - the Governor's proposal to reduce this coverage could affect 30,000+ people.
As a national leader in expanding health care coverage, these cuts not only undermine our claim of being a leading state, they undermine our investments in families.  This is a penny wise, pound foolish strategy to balance the budget on the backs of people already living on the edge.
We urge you to take action and contact Speaker of the House Sharkey, Senate President Looney, Governor Malloy and your own state legislators.

Please call or e-mail today:

Urge them to support:

  • Continued Medicaid coverage of HUSKY A parents and pregnant women at current income eligibility levels
  • No cuts to Medicaid provider rates
  • To learn more about the proposed cuts to Medicaid in the Connecticut state budget, see these resources:

Thank you,
