Important!  If you have not used a MassResources.org Eligibility Check before, please read the questions and answers below before you begin. Also, please note that this eligibility check is not official and is not an application for MassHealth.


What is an eligibility check?

An eligibility check is an easy way for you to find out if you are likely to qualify for MassHealth by answering online questions about your family, your living situation, and your income. You will see the results of the eligibility check right away, on your computer screen.

An eligibility check is not an official application. However, it will give you a good idea of the kinds of questions you will have to answer when you apply and whether you are likely to be eligible for benefits.


Is this eligibility check confidential?

This eligibility check is completely confidential. There are no questions that ask for any personal information about you. We do not ask for your name, your address, or any other information that would identify you.


What questions are asked?

This eligibility check has two sets of questions. There are general questions about your family, your immigration status, whether anyone is disabled, and your work situation. There are also questions about your finances, such as how much money you make and how much you have in savings.

In order to answer the eligibility check questions accurately, you may have to check your records. You may need to look at pay stubs, bank statements, or pension checks. The results of the eligibility check will only be correct if the information you enter is correct.


What do the results mean?

The eligibility check results will show if you are likely to be eligible for MassHealth at this time, based on the information you entered. They will also tell you the type of coverage you are likely to get. If the results show that you are not likely to be eligible for MassHealth, you will be told the reason why.

If you do not agree with the results, or if your household has special circumstances that were not taken into account, you should talk to a benefits advisor at the MassHealth Enrollment Center.

Remember: This eligibility check is not an application for MassHealth and the results are not official. The only way you can know officially if you are eligible is by filing an application with MassHealth.
