Medicaid Strategy Group

Our Mission:

Protect Medicaid in Connecticut.

Connecticut’s Medicaid system is a vital safety net for the most vulnerable people in our state.


Our Impact

The Medicaid Strategy Group advocated for the restoration of reductions, and proposed reductions, in eligibility to the Medicare Savings Program and the HUSKY A parent category. These reductions would have impacted over 125,000 adults, seniors, and people with disabilities across the state. We set the goal, fought relentlessly, and won! Both the Medicare Savings Program and the HUSKY A parents program were fully funded during the 2018 legislative session.

Check out coverage of the session here and here.

Meet Joshua Grocki

Josh is a Hartford resident and parent of three children. As a teenager he was hospitalized to address mental illness. He also has diabetes and requires the use of a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. Due to the access Medicaid’s HUSKY A program provides, he sees a doctor regularly for medication management and is stable on daily medications. He has not been hospitalized since he was a teenager and is an involved parent to his three children.
