Understanding asset eligibility for Medicaid HUSKY C

In Connecticut, Medicaid is known as HUSKY Health. Each HUSKY Health coverage group follows state and federal guidelines to determine financial eligibility based on income and assets. This is referred to as the asset and income limit. While all HUSKY Coverage groups have income limits, HUSKY C (coverage for people who are aged, blind, or disabled) has an asset limit. Part of the financial eligibility requirements for HUSKY C is that your countable assets cannot be more than the HUSKY C asset limit.
