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

More time for Comm. Care enrollees to transition to ConnectorCare.
As we move closer to Jan 1, 2014, there is a lot going on to implement the Affordable Care Act (national health reform a/k/a ObamaCare) here in Massachusetts.
Please read this email from the Connector with important information about notices going out telling people now on Commonwealth Care  that Commonwealth Care is ending Dec 31 and what to do if they are among those who will have to reapply to remain insured on Jan. 1. 
About 1/2 of current enrollees will be automatically switched over to MassHealth (about 100,000), but about half will have to reapply to get new coverage through the Connector (another  100,000).
