Open enrollment began last weekend for health insurance plans purchased through the state’s independent marketplace, the Massachusetts Health Connector (“The Connector”). The Connector serves those who don’t get health insurance through their employers. If you do not have health insurance and are:
- employed, but work somewhere that does not offer insurance coverage
Make sure you know your rights as a consumer. Using the Connector differs from buying insurance coverage directly from an insurer, so it’s important that you understand your options. Boston Globe article, Straightforward answers about using Mass. Health Connector lays out the basic information you need to know.
You can also visit the Connector website directly (www.MAhealthconnector.org) to explore coverage options and find out more.
