Health Connector Health and Dental Plans for 2023

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 This review and overall process is known as the Seal of Approval. 

On Thursday, September 8, 2022, the Health Connector's Board of Directors approved the health and dental plans to be sold effective January 1, 2023. 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. Review materials from the recent Health Connector Board meeting.

Certified Assisters can also download and review the related material from the Resources section of the LMS, in the folder named Open Enrollment 2023.    

Update on Simple Sign Up

As a reminder, the Health Connector worked with the Department of Revenue (DOR) to create a new way for Massachusetts taxpayers to get help with health insurance coverage – right from their state tax returns. Beginning with Tax Year 2021 returns filed this spring, taxpayers could check a box to let DOR and the Health Connector know they were interested in getting help enrolling in health insurance. The Health Connector began reaching out to the taxpayers in late August to tell them about how they could enroll in health insurance coverage. Please be aware that these mailings started and some members may be reaching out to your organizations to set up new appointments for help.

Before completing an application, you can use the Get an Estimate tool to find out what plans are available in the area and see what types of savings they may be eligible for.
