I am currently receiving health insurance benefits from the state. Do I need to reapply for 2014 insurance?

If you are a current Commonwealth Care member and need to re-apply for health insurance, you should get information in the mail explaining the steps you need to take.

  • Everyone covered by Commonwealth Choice, Medical Security Program, or Insurance Partnership needs to re-apply, because these programs will be ending after 12/31/13.
  • Many people need to re-apply if they have Commonwealth Care, because Commonwealth Care will also be ending and replaced with new ways to get help paying for insurance. Current members have until March 24, 2014, to reapply and submit their first payment.
  • People should also re-apply if they have Health Safety Net, or if their children are covered through the Children’s Medical Security Program. Health Safety Net and Children’s Medical Security Program are not ending, but people may be able to get better coverage and avoid paying a tax penalty if they apply for insurance through the MA Health Connector.
  • MassHealth members do not need to take any action at this time.


Please visit MAhealthconnector.org to apply today, or see our Health Insurance Advisors for in-person assistance. Health Insurance Services is located on the first floor at 409 West Broadway, with office hours held Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm.
