The Massachusetts Medicare Enrollment Support Initiative, coordinated with guidance from our third party liability expert Jenifer Hartman of Health Care Finance Solutions, was developed to help ensure all Massachusetts Medicaid (MassHealth) members aged 65+ who qualify for Medicare coverage at no additional cost are successfully enrolled into the program. 14% of MassHealth members aged 65 and over are not enrolled in Medicaid, which overtime has lead to millions in unnecessary costs for MassHealth.

Since 2013, this initiative has helped MassHealth avoid over $50 million dollars by helping eligible MassHealth members enroll in Medicare. Take a look at the key takeaways from this initiative in this presentation.
