Commonwealth Care Plan Type I

If you currently have Commonwealth Care Plan Type I (meaning you earn up to 100% of the federal poverty level, or $11,676 yearly for an individual), you must take action to make sure you have health care coverage past January 2015.

Again, keep an eye out for important mail from the state (and from Tufts Health Plan, if you're a member).


And check this site often for more information and updates, as well as links to more tools and resources to help you understand your options and make educated choices.

You may become eligible for a lower-cost health plan through the Health Connector called a ConnectorCare plan.

    • ConnectorCare plans are affordable, silver-level Health Connector plans with federal and state subsidies to help you pay for your health insurance costs.
  • If you haven't done so already, go to MAhealthconnector.org today, create a new account, apply for health insurance, and enroll in a plan, such as Tufts Health Direct.
    • Apply for and enroll in your new plan now! Take action early so you don't have to worry about gaps in your coverage.
    • You must apply for and enroll in a plan by January 23, 2015, to have coverage on February 1, 2015.
  • If you choose a ConnectorCare plan based on your eligibility, your costs should be similar to what you pay today.
  • The state has likely sent or will send you information in the mail to let you know exactly what you need to do and what your options are.
  • Once you enroll in a plan through the Health Connector, you should receive a health plan ID card with your new information.
