New Paraeducator Healthcare Subsidy Program will provide $5M in health care costs

State officials say $5 million from the new Paraeducator Healthcare Subsidy Program will go toward paras' health care costs.
More than 4,000 paraeducators are eligible for the one-time stipend.
Officials say the plan addresses the gap between high-deductible health plans and para-educators' low wages.
Paras in Connecticut will get a minimum stipend of $200 and a maximum of $3,700.
