MassHealth

MassHealth is health insurance for families with children, for youths under 19, for people who are disabled or blind, for seniors who are at least 65 years old, and for people who have earned very little money in the past year. You get MassHealth automatically if you receive TAFDC, EAEDC or SSI. You can also apply for it separately.

Other health insurance

In Massachusetts, nearly everyone must get health insurance. The Massachusetts Health Connector can help you find the best health insurance for you and your family.
