ConnectorCare is one kind of health insurance you can get from the Massachusetts Health Connector. ConnectorCare is for Massachusetts residents who:

  • have low or moderate income at or below 500% of the federal poverty level,
  • cannot get affordable insurance through work, and
  • cannot get other public insurance like MassHealth or Medicare.

In ConnectorCare, your insurance coverage is through a private HMO plan, but the government pays for part of the costs. Your share of costs is based on your income.

If your income is more than 500% of poverty

You may still be able to get a discount on the premium for other kinds of Health Connector Plans. Check the Get an estimate tool to find out if you qualify for this help paying your premium.
