One Care News. Events. Meetings.
One Care is offering tens of thousands of people who are eligible for both MassHealth and Medicare the choice to be at the center of their care and to simplify their care. That’s newsworthy.

A Message for One Care Enrollees and Stakeholders – June 17, 2015
Fallon Total Care, one of the plans contracted with MassHealth and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide One Care as part of the Massachusetts capitated Financial Alignment Demonstration, has decided that they will be leaving One Care as of September 30, 2015. Fallon Total Care provides One Care coverage in Hampden, Hampshire, and Worcester counties to approximately 5,475 individuals. MassHealth assures members who are currently enrolled with Fallon Total Care (FTC) that we will work hard to ensure as smooth a transition as possible, working with current members, FTC, the other One Care plans, our partners at CMS, advocates, and the One Care Implementation Council. One Care members will not lose their MassHealth or Medicare, and all members will have continuous access to health care services, supportive services, and medications. We will be sharing additional information about this transition over the coming weeks and months.
Meetings and Events
One Care Open Meetings allow the public and other stakeholders to discuss important implementation topics about One Care with MassHealth. We welcome attendance from all stakeholders and members of the public who are interested in One Care. Visit the Open Meetings web page for more information.
The Implementation Council is a selected group of consumers and stakeholders who work with MassHealth to ensure that One Care is successful. At least half of all Council members are MassHealth members with disabilities, or family members or guardians of MassHealth members with disabilities. Members also represent consumer advocacy organizations, service providers, trade organizations, and unions. They play a key role in monitoring access to health care and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), tracking quality of services, providing support and input to EOHHS, and promoting accountability and transparency.
This group was selected in February 2013 and meets approximately monthly. The Council invites the public and other stakeholders to attend these meetings. Visit the Implementation Council web page for more information about the Implementation Council and its meetings.
