Mass Health Insurance Enrollment Still Available
If you are a Massachusetts resident and do not have health insurance, the final date to enroll in the state’s Health Connector program is Wednesday, January 23rd.
The Massachusetts Health Connector’s “hash-tag Stay Covered” Campaign has a special interest in Barnstable County as the Cape has a higher rate of uninsured people than the rest of the state.
Massachusetts overall has the highest rate of uninsured residents in the country, at 97 percent.
On the Cape, 5.7 percent of residents are uninsured, up from 2.5 percent in 2015.
To assist people to apply, shop and enroll in a new health insurance plan, renew your current plan for 2019 and, if enrolled, help you make your monthly premium payment, the Community Action Committee of Cape Cod and the Islands, at 372 North Street in Hyannis, will be open this Saturday, January 12th from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M.
