renewal application, MassHealth will send you another letter to let you know if you and members of your
household still qualify for health coverage through MassHealth, CMSP, or the HSN.

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO DEADLINES!

patient and nurse

If you think you qualify for a subsidy, you can apply at any time, even outside the open enrollment period.
For those who do not need financial  assistance to pay for health insurance, there are some conditions, known
as qualifying events, that allow people to apply for insurance, such as having a new baby
or experiencing a change in your employer-sponsored insurance.

Financial subsidy is based on income, and generally anyone who makes less than 400 percent
of the Federal Poverty Level is eligible for subsidy. That means anyone making less than
$45,960 a year, or a family of four earning $94,200, can qualify for subsidies.
