On Thursday, Jan. 17, the Massachusetts Health Connector held its ‘Day of Coverage’ featuring activities across the Commonwealth designed to help people #GetCovered and #StayCovered with health insurance for the new year.
Day of Coverage activities included a Red Sox World Series Championship trophy photo booth at Forest Hills Station in Jamaica Plain.
Day of Coverage activities were also held in Hyannis, Oak Bluffs, Worcester, Lawrence, and Framingham, all communities with higher rates of uninsured residents than the population at large.
“Massachusetts is a leader in health care access and affordability because throughout the Commonwealth people recognize the need and importance of having health insurance, and the financial and health benefits that come with being covered,” said Louis Gutierrez, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Health Connector. “Throughout Open Enrollment we will provide a stable experience to people who are signing up for coverage, while also making sure people who already have health insurance maintain coverage in 2019.”
For those who need help with an application or picking a Health Connector plan for 2019, Navigators and Certified Application Counselors are available to offer assistance. People needing help can call 1-877-MA-ENROLL, or go to the Health Connector website and find a local assister.
The Health Connector currently serves more than 260,000 individuals and small-employer members with health insurance offering 57 plans from nine carriers. About 80,000 people receive dental insurance through the Exchange. New applicants and renewing members can go to the Health Connector’s website, www.MAhealthconnector.org to secure coverage.
