Welcome to the Health Care Practice Area section. Here you will find information about a variety of health care programs for low income, elderly and disabled people. The most extensive information is about the Massachusetts Medicaid program (MassHealth) including fair hearing decisions, court decisions, practice memos, advocacy alerts and links to useful websites.

Please forward suggestions for content, or problems with broken links, etc. to Neil Cronin.

Resource Library Materials: Browse the library by category by clicking on a link in the sidebar to the left. If a listed category also has subcategories, you can find out what these are by clicking on the plus sign. Or, use the search, particularly if you want information on cross substantive issues.

See the MassHealth website for regulations and subregulatory materials such as operations memoranda and desk guides.
