Enrollment is open now for coverage beginning on January 1, 2014!
Visit the Health Connector or contact your health plan for more information.
Many individuals and families buying health insurance on their own, outside of an employer's plan or a government-subsidized program, can buy health insurance during an open enrollment period.
The 2013 and 2014 open enrollment periods are:
October 1, 2013 - March 31, 2014
October 15, 2014 - December 7, 2014
The Office of Patient Protection will not issue waivers during the rest of the current open enrollment period. You may contact the Connector, a health insurance company, or insurance agent for information about purchasing non-group insurance during the open enrollment period.
If you have questions about the open enrollment waiver process, please call the Office of Patient Protection at 800-436-7757, or email us at HPC-OPP@state.ma.us.
If you have questions about the law that governs open enrollment and eligibility, please call the Division of Insurance at 617-521-7794 or visit its website at www.mass.gov/doi.
