Unfortunately, the Massachusetts Connector Authority doesn't apply to entities that self-insure, including the big hospitals and the colleges. If your company or college's insurance plan doesn't meet state regs, you have to find coverage through the Commonwealth Connector.
When I was in nursing school
, and my employer's insurance premium went up 3 times in 1 year, I looked into the school plan. All students taking more than 9 credits are required to have some kind of coverage, and all Massachusetts community colleges offer the same bare-bones student health insurance plan. Among other things, it specifically excludes organ transplants and all gyn care except abortion and obstetrics services.
