Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On December 11th, the Education Committee of the Health Law Section organized a fabulous session on MassHealth payment and care delivery innovation featuring Robin Callahan, Deputy Medicaid Director in the Executive Office of Health & Human Services. Attendees learned about the new health plan options for MassHealth managed care (MCOs) members available beginning March 1, 2018 including the introduction of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Community Partners (CPs). With the launch of these initiatives, MassHealth seeks to (i) improve population health and care coordination through payment reform and value-based payment models; (ii) improve integration of physical and behavioral health care; (iii) scale innovative approaches for populations receiving long-term services and supports; and (iv) ensure the financial stability of the MassHealth program. If you were unable to attend, more detailed information on the ACO and CP initiatives may be found in the program presentation materials available here:
