This is your application for health coverage if you live in Massachusetts, and you

are 65 years of age or older;

are not otherwise eligible for MassHealth;

are not getting Medicare; and

do not have access to an affordable health plan that meets the minimum value requirement.*

SACA-2-ERV-0721

WHAT YOU NEED WHEN YOU APPLY

The following MUST be sent with the application when applying for MassHealth,

the Health Safety Net, and the Massachusetts Health Connector

You or any household member has a religious exemption as described in federal law.

You or any household member is eligible only for a nonwork SSN.

You or any household member is not eligible for an SSN.

Unless an exception applies, we need SSNs for all persons applying for health coverage. An SSN is optional for persons not applying for health coverage, but giving us an SSN can speed up the application process. We use SSNs to check income and other information to see who is eligible for help with health coverage costs. If someone does not have an SSN or needs help getting one, call the Social Security Administration at (800) 772-1213, TTY: (800) 325-0778, or go to www.socialsecurity.gov. Please see the Senior Guide for more information.

PROOF OF INCOME, ASSETS, AND INSURANCE

We will attempt to verify some of this information through electronic data matches and will notify you if we need further proof. It may speed up the processing of your application if you send proof of these items with it.

Proof of all current income before deductions, such as copies of pay stubs or pension check stubs (You do not have to send proof of social security or SSI income, but you must fill out the social security and SSI income information, if applicable.)

Proof of all assets, such as bank accounts and life insurance policies

Copies of your current health insurance premium bills (such as Medex) if you are applying for long-term-care services in a medical facility. (You do not have to send copies of your Medicare cards.)

Policy numbers for any current health coverage

Information about any other health insurance available to your household

PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP/NATIONAL STATUS

We will try to verify this information through electronic data matches. We will notify you if we need further proof. It may speed up the processing of your application if you send proof of these items with it.

Proof of U.S. citizenship/national status and proof of identity, such as U.S. passports or U.S. naturalization papers. You can also prove U.S. citizenship with a U.S. public birth certificate. You can also prove identity with a driver’s license or some other form of government-issued card. We may be able to prove your identity through the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles records if you have a Massachusetts driver’s license or a Massachusetts ID card. Once you give MassHealth proof of your U.S. citizenship/national status and identity, you will not have to give us this proof again. You must give us proof of identity for all household members who are applying.

Seniors and disabled persons who get or can get Medicare or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or disabled persons who get Social Security Disability (SSDI), do not have to give proof of their U.S. citizenship/national status and identity.

WHY WE ASK FOR THIS INFORMATION

We ask about income and other information to let you know what coverage you qualify for and if you can get any help paying for it. We will keep all the information you provide private and secure, as required by law. To view the Health Connector’s privacy policy, go to mahealthconnector.org. To view MassHealth’s privacy policy, go to www.mass.gov/service-details/ masshealth-member-privacy-information.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT and WHERE TO GET HELP

When we get your filled-out, signed, and dated application, we will review it. If we need more information, we will write or call you. Once we get what we need, we will make a decision about your eligibility and send you a written notice. If you are eligible for MassHealth, show this notice right away to any health care provider if you have paid for medical services that would be covered by MassHealth during your eligibility period. If the health care provider determines that MassHealth will pay for these services, the provider will refund what you paid.
