Frail Elder Waiver (FEW)

This MassHealth program provides frail elders, aged 60 and older, access to the services and supports they need to live successfully in the community.

Home- and Community-Based Services Waivers make needed community supports available to MassHealth-eligible people who would otherwise need facility-based care. The Frail Elder Waiver (FEW) is an HCBS waiver program that makes such supports available to Massachusetts residents aged 60 and older. FEW supports individuals with a variety of needs that can be met with supports ranging from basic to intensive levels.
FEW is a MassHealth program. The Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) is responsible for the day-to-day operation of this waiver program.
