Renew Your MassHealth Coverage

You need to submit a new application for healthcare coverage every year so that MassHealth can confirm that you still qualify.  If you don’t, you will lose your MassHealth coverage and your BMC HealthNet Plan benefits.

In August, MassHealth will begin mailing notices to the following households reminding them to reapply for healthcare coverage.

Renewal Group
Application Deadline

Disabled members and their households


Standard/Family Assistance/CarePlus households not reviewed this spring


Premium Assistance households


You Do Not Need to Renew If:
  • You applied for coverage after 10/15/2014
  • You're an "Express Lane" member. If you have SNAP or other state aid that verifies your income, you should receive a letter from the state saying you've automatically been renewed.

If you think you might need to renew but never received a renewal notice, please contact the MassHealth Customer Service Center at the number below.

How Do I Renew?

MassHealth will mail you a letter with your renewal date and a paper application 60 days before your coverage expires. Submit a new application by the date listed in that letter to keep your coverage. If your renewal date has passed, you are encouraged to apply online as soon as possible to minimize your gap in coverage.

  • Online; You may go to MassHealth's website to get started. The fastest and easiest way to reapply for coverage for both individuals and families is by visiting Simply click 'Start Your Application' on the homepage. You will need to create a new account if you do not already have one.
