Health Connector Special Enrollment Period for COVID-19

March 12, 2020

To ensure everyone who wants access to covered coronavirus services has it, the Massachusetts Health Connector announced that uninsured residents can apply and get into coverage through a 45-day window running until April 25.

On March 6, the Massachusetts Division of Insurance (DOI) announced that Massachusetts health insurers are now required to cover the cost of testing and treatment for members who may be affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), including not charging co-pays or deductibles for those services.

The Health Connector's decision to open enrollment to anyone without coverage ensures Massachusetts residents concerned about contracting coronavirus can access necessary services without cost barriers.

Additionally, the Health Connector will be sharing information about the Division of Insurance guidance with its members to reassure them that coronavirus-related services are available at no cost. View the related press release from the Health Connector.
