Available in-person at MCLE's Conference Center and via live webcast.
This training is designed to help attendees understand MassHealth and other subsidized health programs available to people under age 65 in Massachusetts. The morning program will provide an overview of the eligibility requirements for MassHealth and the process for applying and enrolling in coverage. It will also provide an update on the “unwinding” from policies put in place during the COVID-19 public health emergency affecting MassHealth, the Health Connector and Health Safety Net programs. The afternoon program will provide an overview of subsidized coverage from the Health Connector in its Connector Care program and practical troubleshooting tips for resolving common eligibility and access to service problems with MassHealth and the Health Connector. This training will give outreach workers, social workers, providers, and advocates an upto-date nuts-and-bolts overview of eligibility issues, and how to assist their patients and clients in becoming enrolled and maintaining coverage. The training is designed for new advocates but will also be helpful for experienced advocates looking for a review and update. Detailed online materials will be provided.
