Is that a monthly premium or yearly? Most folks I have spoken with who are on Masshealth pay between $1000-$1500 a year.
I had a gap last fall when I did not have health insurance. The cost for a Cobra plan from my prior employer was $350 per month. Private options were much more.
I now pay $1100 a year as a full time student in Mass as a NH resident. Thank you mass tax payers.
I would pay more than that a month as an independent contractor
