Massachusetts Commonwealth Care
In Spring 2007, Massachusetts passed a new law requiring all residents to have health insurance. You can find out if you are eligible for subsidized health care and/or apply for healthcare on the Massachusetts Commonwealth Care website. There are many different plans available for all income levels. Even if you don't qualify for Commonwealth Care, there are other health plans available, some starting at only a month.

Campus health plans usually do not cover dental services. The Holyoke Health Center may be able to provide non-emergency dental care for people without dental insurance.

To see if you are eligible, call (413) 420-2200 and ask about free or reduced care. (Massachusetts residents only) 230 Maple St, Holyoke. (413) 420-2200.
