Attention Massachusetts Residents: Do you need to purchase or change your health insurance plan?


Open Enrollment for Health Insurance 
November 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017 

Massachusetts Health Connector
  • Visit the Health Connector website to buy a commercial health plan and receive financial assistance if you qualify
  • Information you will need before you start your application:
    • Social Security numbers for all people who are applying (if they have one).
    • Immigration documents for all non-U.S. citizens who are applying (if they have one).
    • A copy of your federal tax return from last year. If you did not file taxes last year, or your income has changed since last year, have information about your current income ready (such as recent pay stubs or an unemployment award letter).
    • Home address or mailing address (if applicable) for everyone in your household who needs insurance, unless they are homeless.
    • If you are found eligible for coverage through the Health Connector and you plan to make a payment online, you will need your banking institution routing number and account number for either your checking or savings account (if you have a premium).
    • If you are found eligible for coverage through the Health Connector and you plan to make a payment by mail or in-person, you will need a personal check or money order to make a payment for your first month’s premium (if you have one).
    • If your employer offers health insurance, ask your employer these questions:
      • Do any of the health plans that the employer offers meet the “minimum value” standard?
      • What is the employee contribution to the lowest-cost health plan offered by your employer for an individual?
      • How often?
        • Weekly
        • Every 2 weeks
        • Twice a month
        • Monthly
