   The American Rescue Plan Act expanded health insurance affordability.

    In Massachusetts, time is running out to take advantage of it.  An extended open enrollment period at the Massachusetts Health Connector ends on July 23rd.

    State officials estimate there is an additional $600 million available to lower health insurance premiums.  

    There is also a zero-cost option for people who were unemployed for any length of time this year.
