If I'm a part-year resident, when does the health care mandate apply to me?

If you moved into Massachusetts, the mandate to obtain and maintain health insurance applies to you beginning on the first day of the third month following the month you became a resident of Massachusetts. For example, if you moved into Massachusetts on May 14, the mandate applies on August 1.

If you moved out of Massachusetts, the mandate to obtain and maintain health insurance applies to you up until the last day of the last full month of Massachusetts residency. For example, if you moved out on July 10, the mandate applies up to June 30. And, if you moved out on September 30, the mandate applies up to September 30.
