The latest health law updates for advocates and social service providers in Massachusetts.

1. MassHealth Renewals

Extension to Oct 16 for people with disabilities.

On August 1, 2015, the Office of Medicaid notified over 30,000 households containing at least one member with a disability that they had to submit a reapplication by Sept 15, 2015 in order to remain eligible for MassHealth.

This reapplication deadline applies to over 60,000 individuals.

We learned today that the number of reapplications filed to date is on the low side. Termination notices will not go out on 9-15; there will be at least a short grace period. But terminations will happen. Over 200,000 people were terminated in July.
