Commonwealth Care Plan Type III
If you currently have Commonwealth Care Plan Type III (meaning you earn between 200.1% and 300% of the federal poverty level, or between $23,341 and $35,016 yearly for an individual, before taxes), 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 to apply for 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 your coverage ending in January 2015.
- You must apply, enroll in a plan, and pay your premium by January 23, 2015, to have coverage on February 1, 2015.
- If you choose a ConnectorCare plan based on your eligibility, your benefits should be fairly similar to those of your Tufts Health Forward plan and your costs may even be lower.
- 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.
Again, keep an eye out for important mail from the state (and from Tufts Health Plan, if you're a member).
