Abstract

This report outlines the impact of the new budget proposal on 37,500 low-income working parents in Connecticut. Tighter eligibility requirements effective in 2014 will impact those currently insured under Medicaid (HUSKY). Higher out-of-pocket costs may prevent up to 11,000 parents from affording health insurance.
