Gov. Ned Lamont announced the expansion of the Husky health coverage for undocumented children.
The new expansion will allow undocumented children up to 15 years old residing in Connecticut to register for Husky, the state's Medicaid program.
The law expanding coverage was signed by Lamont in 2023 and went into effect on Monday.
Previously, the age limit was 12.
“This policy is good for the state, good for families, it saves the state money, and we should embrace this as a really big deal for our families to know that some folks are able to get coverage,” said Luis Luna, the coalition manager of Husky 4 Immigrants.
