If you would like to apply for health insurance coverage, you should speak with one of our benefits counselors before your visit with your medical provider. Our benefits counselors can help you with the application process and determine your eligibility for affordable health insurance plans to make sure that you and your family stays healthy.
Our counselors are experienced working with insurers such as MassHealth, Children's Medical Security Plan, Marketplace Qualified Health Plans, and Health Safety Net, and will help you find the right coverage. Discounts are also available based on family size and income through Reduced-cost sliding fees
You will need to bring the following information with you when you visit a Health Benefits Counselor:
No one will be denied access to services due to an inability to pay. In addition, you may qualify for health coverage regardless of your immigration status.
- Photo ID (driver’s license, passport etc.)
- Proof of income (two weekly pay stubs or one bi-weekly pay stubs, income tax forms)
- Proof of Immigration Status (legal permanent resident card, visa, asylum, etc.)
- Proof of Citizenship (a photo ID along with a birth certificate or a passport)
Many private insurance plans are also accepted at the Health Center, and the list is growing every day. See the current list in the box on the right for medical and dental coverage
