Vicky Pulos

This updated paper from MLRI describes changes in the methodology for determining income that were enacted as part of national health reform and how they will be implemented in MassHealth starting Jan. 1, 2014. The new tax-based methodology will affect most people on MassHealth except those eligible based on being age 65 or older or the need for institutional care. The paper includes flow charts showing how to "build" a household under the MAGI rules.
