MassHealth proprietary MMQ software is no longer available for download.

Effective October 1, 2015, MassHealth will no longer support the proprietary MMQ software previously available to providers on By September 30, 2015, all providers using this software must transition to an alternative method of submitting MMQs through the Provider Online Service Center (POSC). Such methods include:

  • using the direct data entry MMQ functionality
  • submitting MMQ batch files in accordance with MassHealth MMQ file specifications
  • engaging a vendor to generate MMQ batch files

In order to facilitate this transition, MassHealth has removed its proprietary MMQ software from the website. It is no longer available for providers to download. However, MassHealth will provide support for the proprietary MMQ software until September 30, 2015, when all providers have transitioned to an alternative submission method.
