Starting on March 1, 2018, MassHealth will offer new health plans for certain members to choose from. This includes MassHealth members who are under age 65, without other insurance, and living in the community who have Standard, CommonHealth, CarePlus, or Family Assistance coverage types.
The Department of Mental Health (DMH) is also planning to restructure and strengthen their community service system for adults, currently known as Community Based Flexible Supports (CBFS). DMH will transition to a new service system, Adult Community Clinical Services (ACCS), effective July 1, 2018.
NAMI Massachusetts wants our members to understand these upcoming changes, and have the opportunity to comment on the specific details of them.
This webinar will be most helpful for people who currently have CBFS services and their families, as well as community advocates and other interested parties. The purpose of the webinar is to provide our members with preparation material to better understand these changes. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.
