What is Open Enrollment?
Open Enrollment is the time of the year where consumers can buy a new health insurance plan or change their current plan. If you do not have access to affordable health insurance through your employer, you can apply for individual insurance through the Massachusetts Health Connector.
Note: This is different than employer-sponsored insurance. If you receive health insurance through your job, you should ask your employer for more information about your options.
When is Open Enrollment?
In Massachusetts, open enrollment for plans on the Massachusetts Health Connector is from November 1, 2020 to January 23, 2021. This open enrollment timeframe only applies to Massachusetts.

If I am already enrolled in a health insurance plan, do I need to do anything?
Even if you already have health insurance, it’s still a good idea to confirm that your information is correct before December 23rd, 2020 and to compare your options to make sure that your health plan is still affordable to you. It’s possible that your premiums may be changing from this year, so you should double check now. You can choose to stay with your same plan if it’s still available, or shop for other options.
It’s also important update your information whenever you have a change to report, including changes in income, changes in your household size and Tax dependent status. This information determines the level of financial assistance you will receive to help you pay for insurance, so make sure your information is up to date before choosing a plan.
