Special Note about Income Changes

Reporting a change to your income may change the how much help paying for costs you receive if you applied for subsidies. If you receive an Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC) and you report an income increase, you may see a decrease in APTC. If you report an income that is less, you may see an increase in APTC. If you are now enrolled in a Health Connector plan with no APTC and your income is lower— below 400% the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)—and you applied for coverage and help paying costs, then you may become eligible for APTC. If you report an income that is at or below 300% FPL, you may be eligible for ConnectorCare plans. If you are enrolled in ConnectorCare and report an increase or decrease in income that is still at or below 300% FPL, then your Plan Type may change. Learn more about Plan Types → If you report an income that is at or below 133% FPL, you may qualify for MassHealth coverage. View FPL Chart →

Canceling your Health Connector or ConnectorCare plan

As a Health Connector member, you have a right to cancel your health or dental plan at any time. But the day of the month when you cancel your plan is very important. If you need to cancel a health or dental plan for next month, then you must cancel the plan by the 23rd of the current month. Your coverage end date is the last day of the month that you request your plan cancellation even if you cancel before the 23rd of the month.  Otherwise, your coverage will end the last day of the following month. So, if you cancel your plan on or before the 23rd of the month, you will still be covered through the last day of that same month. If you cancel your coverage the 24th of the month or later, you will be covered for the entire following month if you paid your monthly premium. Here is an example:  You started a new job and now will  have health insurance through your new employer that starts on October 1. You must cancel your plan through the Health Connector between September 1 and September 23 in order for your plan to end by September 30 right before your job-based plan starts on October 1st so you can avoid having—and paying for—two health plans. You will not be able to take action to cancel your plan between the 24th and the last day of the month.   Special note for members who make automatic payments [...]
