Health Insurance Stability | Chestnut Hill Pediatrics

During these times, we know that many families’ circumstances are changing. As always, we are here to help keep your family healthy.

Families who need access to health insurance should apply for coverage as soon as is possible – it’s your safety net, and you may be eligible for low- or no-cost coverage .

If you’ve lost health insurance that you had through a job, make sure to apply within 60 days of losing that coverage. However, the sooner you apply, the sooner your new health insurance can start. Even if you cannot afford COBRA coverage, you may still apply for health insurance through the Health Connector or MassHealth.
