A new study finds that 96.3% of CT children eligible for HUSKY participated in the program in 2016; we are tied for seventh among states. The US average is 93.7% for all states; 94.9% for states, like CT, that expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Even better, CT ranks fourth among states in enrolling eligible parents with 92.2% enrolled. Unlike CT, most states do a far better job of enrolling eligible children than their parents. The US average for all states enrolling eligible parents is 79.9% and 85.4% for expansion states. Despite resource challenges at the state government level, CT’s healthcare outreach community has done a great job of enrolling eligible members.
