The State of Connecticut's publicly funded dental care programs, HUSKY A, HUSKY B, HUSKY C (Traditional Medicaid Title XIX Fee For Service) and HUSKY D (Medicaid For Low Income Adults-formerly State Administered General Assistance "SAGA"), now have been combined into one dental plan with a new name: the Connecticut Dental Health Partnership (CTDHP). CTDHP oversees the dental plan for the Department of Social Services (DSS) HUSKY Health program which covers more than 840,000 residents in Connecticut.

DSS is the lead agency for the State of Connecticut which provides a broad range of services to the elderly, people with disabilities, families and individuals who need assistance in maintaining or achieving their full potential for self-direction, self-reliance and independent living. DSS administers over 90 legislatively authorized programs and operates on one-third of the state budget. DSS also administers the Medical Assistance Program which includes the Connecticut Dental Health Partnership.

BeneCare Dental Plans was selected by DSS, in 2008, as the Administrative Service Organization to manage the Connecticut Dental Health Partnership for the State of Connecticut. BeneCare is a dental benefit management company that operates dental benefit programs for fully insured and self-insured clients in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions under a wide array of State, County and Municipal government, multi-employer welfare fund and commercial employer sponsored plans.
