Massachusetts: Health Connector extends #COVID19 Special Enrollment Period thru 7/23

Hardly surprising at this point, but still important to note:

Health Connector extends enrollment an additional month to July 23rd for uninsured individuals

On June 22, 2020, the Health Connector announced in an Administrative Bulletin an extension to the special enrollment period in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency through July 23, 2020 to assist uninsured Massachusetts residents seeking health coverage. (The extended enrollment period was previously set to end June 23.)

If you need to apply for coverage, you can start by creating an application.

If you apply coverage under this special enrollment, the deadlines to complete enrollment are as follows:

  • July 1 start date: Enroll by June 23
  • August 1 start date: Enroll by July 23

Please note that if you are eligible to enroll due to normal special enrollment period rules, you can select the one that applies when you complete your application.

If you or family members are eligible for MassHealth programs, you can apply any time of the year. Your coverage may start sooner than the 1st of the month.
