Apply for MassHealth online by going to the company website, creating a new account and completing an application. The MassHealth plan is one of three health plans offered by the Massachusetts nonprofit Tufts Health Plan, the others being the One Care and Qualified Health Plans.
In order to complete your application, you need to provide some basic information, such as the primary applicant's date of birth and whether or not the applicant uses tobacco products. It is possible to browse the coverage plans that MassHealth provides without registering, but you still have to input some personal information to see if you're eligible.
Once you've submitted your completed application, you can find out what plans you are eligible to use. Select a plan, and your coverage begins on the first day of the month of the effective date you requested.
It is important to note that MassHealth doesn't provide plans themselves, but instead provides a list of the plans you are eligible to take and gives you the opportunity to shop around for plans and choose one that fits your situation. In addition, MassHealth informs users of the amount of financial aid they can receive by paying for each insurance plan.
