According to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), 239,000 Massachusetts residents are uninsured (4% of the state’s population) and 86% of those are eligible for tax credits to supplement their insurance costs in the Affordable Care Act-enabled marketplace.
The HHS also reported that the average cost for the bronze plan in Massachusetts, the lowest-cost option, is $226 /mo. before any tax credits. This is below the national average for a bronze plan which is $249 a month.
Massachusetts has opted to run their own health care marketplace and residents can enroll at the official website mahealthconnector.org. As a basis for comparison, we encourage you to get quotes direct from other insurance companies to view a better range of plans and to get assistance with dental and vision plans.
