About the program
This coverage type provides emergency health services to people who, under federal law, have an immigration status that keeps them from getting more services.
For MassHealth Limited, covered services include the ones listed below. You can get care only for medical emergencies (conditions that could cause serious harm if not treated). There may be some limits. Your health care provider can explain them.
- inpatient hospital emergency services including labor and delivery
- outpatient hospital emergency services, and emergency visits to emergency rooms
- certain services provided by doctors and clinics outside a hospital
- medical services: pharmacy services used to treat an emergency medical condition
- ambulance transportation for an emergency medical condition
You may be able to get MassHealth Limited if you are:
- under age 19;
- a parent living with his or her children under age 19; or
- disabled according to the standards set by federal law. This means you have a mental or physical condition that limits or keeps you from working for at least 12 months. MassHealth decides if you meet the disability standards.
- for pregnant women: 200% of the federal poverty level
- for children under age one: 200% of the federal poverty level
