To inform the development of MassHealth’s approach to enhancing its delivery system during the upcoming renewal of its Section 1115 demonstration (also known as the MassHealth 1115 waiver), the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) formed three stakeholder workgroups. Individuals interested in observing any of these work group meetings must email Alysa St. Charles (Alysa.StCharles@umassmed.edu) at least 24 hours prior to the work group’s scheduled meeting time to receive a link and/or phone number for the virtual meeting.
