MA Health Pushes Insurance Application Back Due to Snow

Friday, February 13, 2015

 

The Massachusetts Health Connector and MassHealth announced on Friday that they are extending the deadline to complete an application and pick a plan to February 23. 

The rescheduled date is an acknowledgement of the toll that the series of snowstorms in Massachusetts has taken on operation and the ability for people to sign up for insurance. 

“We here in Massachusetts have experienced an extraordinary month of weather that has not only limited our operations, but also taken over the day-to-day lives of residents as they shovel out and try to deal with the snow,” said Louis Gutierrez, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Health Connector.

Through February 11, over 46,000 people had completed an application and had been determined qualified for MassHealth or a Health Connector Qualifiied Health Plan.

About 343,000 have enrolled in coverage.

"We worked closely with the Baker-Polito Administration to create this extension, which gives people a little more time to finish up what they need to do to get health insurance through the Commonwealth," Gutierrez added.
