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.

 You likely need to renew if:

  • You renewed your health coverage online last year
