It’s time to renew health insurance coverage for 2023, and the Community Health Programs insurance team is available to help Berkshire region residents with updating their MA Health Connector insurance plan.
The Open Enrollment period runs from Nov. 1, 2022-Jan. 23, 2023. Anyone wishing to make an appointment with a CHP Patient Navigator can call (413) 854-2816 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments take place online or in person, and there is no cost.
Anyone can enroll or update their plan online with the MA Health Connector, but CHP’s insurance team can often navigate this process more quickly and easily.
William Cruz, the lead certified patient navigator at CHP, said, “Don’t ignore those letters from MA Health Connector because health insurance is mandatory in Massachusetts. We are glad to help anyone regardless of whether they are a CHP patient, and our services are free.”
Health Connector customers must report any income changes to maintain qualification for ACA insurance and any available subsidies. But now is also the time to review existing coverage and make plan changes, enroll for the first time, or report any changes in your dependents or other family changes.
CHP Patient Navigators can also help make sure that eligible MA Health Connector customers don’t miss out on expanded subsidies made available by the American Rescue Plan Act this year.
Clients seeking assistance are asked to bring proof of income to their appointment.
