$0 ConnectorCare Plans Available to those Receiving Unemployment Income

Massachusetts residents currently receiving unemployment benefits may now qualify for a no- or low-monthly cost ConnectorCare health insurance plan from the Health Connector — even if they wouldn’t otherwise qualify based on their household income. 

We are asking for your help to raise awareness and promote this newly available benefit that could save households thousands of dollars this year. Many of those eligible for this new benefit may not yet be aware of it.

Here are some tools you can use to help promote this new benefit in your community:

  • Health Connector social media toolkits you can use to help raise awareness about the American Rescue Plan –scroll down on the toolkit webpage to see a section with social media content you can use that specifically highlights the new $0 coverage option through the Health Connector for unemployed residents of Massachusetts.
  • A brief explainer video about this new benefit for unemployed people that includes how to find help in their community.
  • Link to FAQs about the unemployment benefits provision and Health Connector offerings from our American Rescue Plan & Unemployment Benefits section of our website.

Learn more about the American Rescue Plan and how it helps make coverage more affordable, especially for those receiving unemployment income.
