Community Action Committee of Cape Cod & Islands (CACCI) in partnership with the Massachusetts Health Connector and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation announced that they exceeded their Health Connector “Open Enrollment” (Nov. 1, 2016-Jan. 23, 2018) goals.  CACCI is one of 16 community -based state funded Navigator organizations charged with educating and assisting eligible individuals with selecting and enrolling in the state insurance plan that best meets their needs.

In the words of Louis Gutierrez, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Health Connector, “Our goal every Open Enrollment is to expand access to affordable coverage to people who do not have health insurance, and to ensure that our current members are able to maintain quality coverage that best suits their needs.”

CACCI praised their out-posting partners who helped them connect with many Cape Cod and Nantucket residents:  Falmouth Service Center, Lower Cape Outreach Council, Provincetown Veterans Memorial Center, and Fairwinds- Nantucket Counseling Center.  “Without our network and community partners who posted our Open Enrollment flyers, sent out information via their listservs, and referred their customers to us for assistance, we could have never exceeded our goals, added Caronanne Procaccini, Director of Client Self Sufficiency for the agency..   

CAC has three Navigators available to assist people with their selection and enrollment.  If you are looking for health insurance, have questions about your current plan, are newly eligible for subsidized public health insurance or qualify for a Special Enrollment Period with a Qualifying Life Event, or wish to apply and enroll in MassHealth, call CACCI today at 508-771-1727 or walk-in at 372 North Street, Hyannis.
