If you need health insurance or have experienced a job change and no longer have health insurance through work, apply through the Massachusetts Health Connector by April 23 for coverage that starts May 1.
If you already have health insurance coverage through the Health Connector, make sure to return to your application to update all changes in circumstances to ensure that you are receiving the most appropriate benefits. Even if you have not received financial assistance in the past, you may be newly eligible for subsidies that could lower your monthly health insurance premium.
