The Health Connector Broker Enrollment Assister Program
The Broker Enrollment Assister (BEA) Program is a new program launched by the Health Connector that will allow brokers to help individuals and families apply for financial assistance through the Health Connector to pay all or a portion of the costs of their health insurance. Generally speaking, individuals and families earning at or below 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) may be eligible for financial assistance in the form of Medicaid (known as “MassHealth” in Massachusetts), tax credits, cost-sharing reductions, or special state programs like ConnectorCare.
