Member Privacy

Your Privacy

Protecting your privacy is very important to the HUSKY Health Program. We have many procedures in place to be sure we protect (keep safe from harm) the health information we have about you. Some examples of health information we have about you are the following:

  • Your name, address and telephone number;
  • Your member Identification number;
  • Your social security number; and
  • Information we receive from your doctors when they send a referral to us.

The Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) has created a Notice of Privacy Practices that tells you how health information we have about you is shared for our normal daily operations and when we are required by law to share it. It also tells you what your privacy rights are.

If you would like to see a copy of the DSS Privacy Notice, please click here. For the Spanish version, click here.

If you have questions about the Privacy Notice, please call the DSS Privacy Officer at 1.888.760.8883 or your eligibility caseworker.

Opting Out Of Sharing Electronic Health Information with Your PCP, Hospital and/or Specialist

The HUSKY Health Program gives Primary Care Providers (PCPs), the hospital you go to for care and the specialist who manages your care computer access to certain information. In addition to having computer access to certain health information from their own records, unless you tell us otherwise, they will have secure computer access to certain health information about you that HUSKY Health has from some of your other health providers, such as other hospitals, specialists and pharmacies. Your PCP, hospital and specialist may only use this information for treatment purposes. If you do not want your PCP, hospital and/or specialist to have computer access to this information, you will need to complete an Opt-Out Request Form and send it back to us.
