MassHealth Restructured To Improve Care, Rein In Costs

BOSTON The Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) today announced changes to the MassHealth organization that will restructure the program and support the move toward a more patient-centered and accountable system of health care.

A March 2015 revision to the paper application for MassHealth & Connector coverage is out.  Attached is our review of the changes: many improvements, some old problems remain, some new problems created. 
 
Attached are flyers in English and Spanish about the Renewal Events in Boston on April 15th and Chelsea on April 24th.  Your assistance in referring appropriate MassHealth recipients to these events is appreciated.
MassHealth & Connector staff will be available in downtown Boston to provide in person assistance to people who need to reapply to renew their MassHealth coverage. See the attached flyer. 
 
When: April 15, 2015 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
