As of July 1, 2021, some ConnectiCare members who meet specific eligibility and income requirements will not have to pay their deductibles, copays or coinsurance for medically necessary, covered services – thanks to the state’s new Covered Connecticut Program.
Under the program, which the Connecticut legislature approved last month, the state will pay for the monthly premiums and cost-shares of qualifying Connecticut residents who are parents and/or caretaker relatives of children who are eligible for HUSKY A (Connecticut’s Medicaid program that covers children, their parents and pregnant women). These residents must have qualifying Silver Level plans purchased through the state insurance exchange, Access Health CT.
This means, ConnectiCare providers should not charge any cost-shares to these members. Submit your claims directly to ConnectiCare for processing. Make sure to sign in to connecticare.com/providers to check your patients’ benefits and eligibility and see if they are under the Covered Connecticut Program. We’re in the process of sending out new member ID cards (sample below) to the ConnectiCare members who qualify for the program. Please note, their member ID numbers will remain the same.
We will publish more updates as they become available, but, for now, you can see more about the program on the Connecticut state website.
