MassHealth will have even more health plans to choose from, so members can get the health care they need. Starting March 1, 2018, new Accountable Care Organization or ACO health plans will be available. The new ACO health plans are groups of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers who come together to give coordinated, high-quality care to MassHealth members. This way, MassHealth members get the right care at the right time. When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars wisely, MassHealth will reward the ACO.  Learn about the health plans that will be available in your area, compare plans, and then enroll in a health plan. The Department of Mental Health is working with MassHealth to ensure that all DMH services are integrated with the new plans. More information from MassHealth
