HARTFORD, Conn. – State officials announced Thursday that about 15 percent of the low-income parents who were about to lose their temporary insurance in July will continue to receive coverage.

Last year, because of budget cuts, the state said it was kicking 17,688 low-income parents off the Husky A health insurance plan. They were then provided with a year of temporary insurance coverage, called TMA, or temporary medical assistance.

As the deadline for the end of that temporary insurance approaches, Access Health CT officials said this week that 2,134 of those parents have enrolled in private insurance plans or a different Medicaid plan.
