You could pay less to use the internet

We want you to have fast and reliable internet service so you can get the most out of your health plan.

With the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) you can get a discount on your monthly internet cost.  These benefits are from the federal government, not from Tufts Health Plan or Medicaid. There is no guarantee of eligibility into this program.

The program also allows for a one-time discount of up to $100 on the cost of a device. You can use this to buy a laptop, desktop computer or tablet. To get this discount, you need to buy the device from a participating provider. You also need to pay more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.

Medicaid members and those who have Lifeline qualify for the ACP. You can get both Lifeline and ACP benefits.

You can learn more or apply in English or Spanish.

Then contact your internet provider to get your discount.
