Once you qualify for ConnectorCare, you have a deadline to enroll. Enrolling means you

  • pick an HMO and
  • pay the first month’s premium by a deadline. Not everyone has a premium.
  • NEW in April 2022, when you apply you can choose to allow the Health Connector to automatically enroll you into a plan if you qualify for a plan with no premium.


If you miss the deadline to enroll, you may only be able to enroll later if you can show a special exception. See more information on enrollment into ConnectorCare.
