BOSTON (AP) — A deadline for those hoping to sign up for health insurance plans in the new year is fast approaching in Massachusetts.
Anyone who is currently uninsured and wants to have a health plan starting on January 1 has until Wednesday to sign up.
Those looking for health coverage can start by visiting the Massachusetts Health Connector website where they can complete an application and find out whether they qualify for MassHealth or Massachusetts Health Connector coverage.
The health care sign-up deadline for most states — including those that use healthcare.gov as an exchange — is Dec. 15.
In Massachusetts, however, the deadline is Dec. 23.
