The following is the full list of approved MassHealth ACOs:

  • Atrius Health with Tufts Health Public Plans

  • Baystate Health Care Alliance with Health New England

The Governor & EOHHS remain intent on restricting eligibility and benefits in MassHealth despite the legislature's refusal to add the necessary authorizing legislation to the FY 2018 budget. We expect more legislative activity in September. Meanwhile, EOHHS has released for public comment proposed amendments to the current 1115 demonstration waiver.
