Help with Buying Food



 The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, is a nutrition program that helps low-income individuals and families buy food. The Federal government created the program to help people with low income eat well to stay healthy.

If you are eligible, we put your SNAP benefits in an electronic bank account.

We will give you a plastic Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card to use to buy food at stores that accept EBT. You can use your EBT card at most grocery stores and at some Farmer’s Markets.

You may be able to get SNAP benefits in 7 days if:

1.                 Your household's income is less than $150 per month and your household’s assets are less than $100, or  

2.                 Your rent and utilities are more than your monthly income before deductions, or  

3.                 You are a migrant seasonal farm worker and your household’s cash and money in the bank is less than$100.


Medical Benefits

Connecticut has several health care  programs that help residents get health care coverage:


·                     HUSKY A (for children under 19, parents, pregnant women, and adults who live with and take care of children who are related to them)

·                     HUSKY B (for children under 19)

·                     HUSKY C (for people who are 65 or older, blind, or disabled)

·                     HUSKY D  (for low-income adults ages 19-64)

·                     Medicare Savings Program

·                     Family Planning Services



Connecticut children and their parents or a relative caregiver; and pregnant women may be eligible for HUSKY A (also known as Medicaid), depending on family income. 

 Uninsured children under age 19 in higher-income households may be eligible for HUSKY B (also known as the Children’s Health Insurance Program).  Depending on specific income level, family cost-sharing applies.

Medicare Savings Programs

 The Medicare Savings Programs (MSP), also known as Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB), Specified Low Income Beneficiary (SLMB) and Additional Low Income Beneficiary (ALMB), help pay for your Medicare premiums. QMB will also pay for your Medicare co-insurance and deductibles. We can only make the payment if the provider accepts Medicaid.

 We do not pay the co-insurance and deductibles under the SLMB and ALMB programs.



Connecticut residents of any age who do not receive HUSKY may qualify for this program.  This program extends coverage for family planning services to individuals at no cost even if they already have private health insurance.


Some services covered under this program are:

·         Contraceptive services and supplies

·         Family planning pharmacy visits

·         Pap tests

·         Tubal ligation
