To select BMC HealthNet Plan:

  • Once you qualify for MassHealth, you'll get an enrollment package that tells you how to select a health plan.
  • To choose us as your health plan, select your plan online or call MassHealth at 800-841-2900.
  • If you don't select a MassHealth health plan within 14 days of the date on your enrollment package letter, the state will automatically assign you to a health plan.
  • MassHealth members that are enrolled in a BMC HealthNet Plan (and members of all other MassHealth managed care plans) may select a plan during the Plan Selection Period. This is a 90-day time period when you can shop and change your managed care plan. When the 90 days is up, you will enter a Fixed Enrollment Period. During this time you will need to stay with the plan you are in until the next Plan Selection Period. MassHealth has a few exceptions to this policy.
