State House and Senate leaders are working on a state budget for 2019. In proposals released on Tuesday afternoon, the Medicare Savings Program for seniors and people with disabilities AND the HUSKY A program for parents are restored. These are the first budget proposals which include restoring coverage for the 13,000 working parents in HUSKY A. But it's not a final budget deal yet. Let's make sure legislative leadership knows how important coverage for HUSKY A parents is.
Contact legislative leadership today and tell them we need restoration of HUSKY A coverage now! Names and contact information below.

Good News! HB 5210, the bill to put Affordable Care Act protections into state law, passed the Senate Monday night by a vote of 34-2. Only needs the Governor's signature to become law.
