Provider Communications

MassHealth communicates to providers in various ways. Primarily, communication occurs through provider bulletins and transmittal letters. MassHealth uses provider bulletins to communicate procedures, reminders, policy clarifications and other information to MassHealth providers.

Transmittal letters are used to communicate changes to MassHealth provider regulatory and sub-regulatory information such as updated to the Subchapter 6 list of HCPCS codes.

Additionally, MassHealth uses Remittance Advice Message Text Messages that are found on the first page of the remittance advice that providers receive to communicate important updates. When logging into the POSC, providers should always check the Broadcast Messages under the Manage Correspondence and Reporting link.

Provider Associations

MassHealth has partnered with various provider associations and have quarterly meetings with association representatives to share MassHealth updates. This partnership provides another source to communicate MassHealth provider information through these associations’ websites, emails, and newsletters.
