Health Care Reform:

Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

Health Connector

Financial Aid and Medicaid continued...

You also may be eligible for cost-sharing subsidies that will reduce your costs when you get medical care. Cost sharing subsidies are available only if you buy a silver-level plan.

Medicaid Expansion: Some states, including Massachusetts, expanded sdMedicaid so more people can get health insurance coverage. Because Massachusetts is one of them, you may be eligible if your yearly gross income is no more than roughly $15,856 for one person and $32,499 for a family of four.

CHIP: The Children’s Health Insurance Program provides coverage for children of some families who have a low income but are not eligible for Medicaid. 

Go to the Massachusetts Health Connector to see if you qualify for these programs.
