Update - Health Connector Open Enrollment 2021 extending through 5/23

February 11, 2021

The Health Connector recently announced it is continuing Open Enrollment until May 23rd, providing additional time for residents to access affordable, quality health insurance, particularly those hurt by the economic impacts of COVID-19.

  • Massachusetts residents who do not have health insurance have a new opportunity to get coverage through the Health Connector. This includes unsubsidized commercial plans and subsidized coverage (plans with APTC and ConnectorCare plans).
  • Along with people who do not have health insurance, people who are currently in COBRA coverage after losing their jobs can switch to a Health Connector plan during this period.
    • Qualifying for ConnectorCare would represent significant savings for people who are currently paying the full premium for COBRA plans. It is likely that COBRA participants could also find lower-cost plans available without subsidy.
