Introduction to One Care - Webinar for State Agencies and CBOs

We are forwarding this announcement of a One Care webinar. One Care is the new managed care program combining Medicare and Medicaid benefits for individuals with disabilities starting October 1.

 
Introduction to One Care - Webinar for State Agencies and CBOs

Dear State Agency and Community-based Organization colleagues,

I’m writing to invite you to attend a webinar to learn about One Care: MassHealth plus Medicare.  One Care is a new way for adults with disabilities to get their MassHealth and Medicare benefits together from a One Care plan.  Enrollment is beginning in October.  One Care plans will be available to people who live in the counties of Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin, Worcester, Middlesex, Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk, and parts of Plymouth County.  

In your role at a state agency or CBO, you may interact with consumers and others who are hearing about One Care and might have questions.  The webinar. Introduction to One Care, is designed to help you and your staff learn about the program, how it may affect the individuals you work with, and how to get more information.

The webinars are scheduled as follows:

Date

Time

Thursday, August 29, 2013

12-1:30pm

Friday, September 13, 2013

12-1:30pm

The same presentation will be provided at each webinar, so you need not attend both.  We encourage you and your staff to participate.

We will be using a webinar provider called Accessible Events, which is designed to be accessible to all, including people with hearing loss and visual impairments.  In addition, the September 13  webinar will also be presented in American Sign Language, in a split screen view.

To register for one of the webinars, please follow the instructions in the attached document.

Thank you, and we look forward to your participation.  In the meantime, for more information about One Care, visit www.mass.gov/masshealth/onecare.

Best,

Catherine
