2021 Health Connector Plan Resources and Non-Discrimination Update

September 30, 2020
Health Connector Health and Dental Plans for 2021
 
Each year, the Health Connector conducts a complete review of Health and Dental plans proposed by health and dental carriers to be sold the next year on MAhealthconnector.org. This review and overall process is known as the Seal of Approval.
 
On Thursday, September 10, 2020, the Health Connector's Board of Directors approved the health and dental plans to be sold effective January 1, 2021.
 
This approval included plans that are part of the ConnectorCare program, unsubsidized health and dental plans, as well as plans that consumers apply their advance premium tax credits (APTCs) towards.

Update on Health Connector Non-Discrimination Notice and Translation Supports
 
The Health Connector requires robust non-discrimination and translation supports on behalf of our applicants and members.
 
  • Neither the Health Connector nor our health plans may discriminate based on gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, or the ability to speak English.
  • The Health Connector will also maintain language in notices telling individuals how to file a complaint if they feel they've been discriminated against and how to access translation services.
  • Our customer service team can provide language support for anyone who calls.
 
We are committed to continuing to engage with advocates for LGBTQ+ and immigrant communities to ensure that our plans work for everyone. We urge members to continue accessing services as needed without fear of discrimination, as Health Connector policies, health plan contracts, and state-based rules all provide broad protections against discrimination.

More detailed information about the Health Connector's Nondiscrimination Policy can be found on the Health Connector website.
