HUSKY NONPROFIT EMPLOYERS

By: Robin K. Cohen, Principal Analyst

You asked for a list of those nonprofit employers with the highest number of employees and employees' children who receive HUSKY A.

Due to serious staff shortages in the Department of Social Services (DSS), for this report, we had to rely on enrollment data that DSS provided us in July 2011. From that data, the Connecticut Association of Nonprofits helped us identify which employers are nonprofits. The association suggested that we not include hospitals and we did not.

Table 1 lists the nonprofit employers with the highest HUSKY A enrollment among their employees and their children as of May 24, 2011. (Two of these employers, the YMCA and VNA Healthcare, also had employees whose children received HUSKY A but the employees did not. The other nonprofit employers also may have had employees whose children alone qualified, but the information we received only covers employers with at least 30 employees whose children received benefits, presumably for confidentiality reasons. For this report, we do not include those children who received HUSKY A but their caretakers did not.)
