We regret to announce that Connecticut Voices’ project for independent HUSKY Program performance monitoring will come to an end July 29, 2016.  Recent cuts in state funding have made it impossible to continue this work.

Since 1995, state-funded independent performance monitoring in Connecticut’s HUSKY Program has produced policy-relevant, actionable data about coverage and access to care for over 475,000 children, parents and pregnant women in low income families.  Independent HUSKY Program performance monitoring has been instrumental in maintaining coverage for low income families, calling for accountability, and enhancing the Department of Social Service’s capacity for HUSKY Program administration and oversight.   Legislators, state agency staff and other policy makers have relied on independent analyses of program data and policies for assessing the impact of policy changes and identifying areas for improvement.   We have monitored and reported on the following areas of HUSKY Program performance:

  • Health insurance enrollment trends, coverage continuity, and gaps in coverage;
  • Maternal health and birth outcomes for new families with publicly-funded coverage for maternity and infant care; 
  • Health services access and utilization trends, with special focus on the impact of major program and policy changes and on health disparities; and
  • Impact of a federally-funded project on maternal and infant oral health services. 

We are grateful to the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and to the Connecticut Health Foundation for support of this long-standing public-private partnership with Connecticut’s Department of Social Services.
