Public Hearing: Managed Care Lock-in

When: Wednesday, August 10, 2016, 10:00 A.M.

Where: Conference Room on the 21st Floor of the McCormack Building, One Ashburton Place, Boston, MA

In January, EOHHS announced plans to implement a Managed Care lock-in policy effective October 1, 2016. This will restrict the ability of MassHealth members to freely change managed care plans to a 12 month cycle. This means a person will have a 90 day trial period, but after that time will be stuck in a plan for an entire year unless they meet exemption criteria! We have learned from One Care that a very high percentage of people who are “passively” enrolled in a plan don’t even know that they are enrolled until 90 after days or more.

The public notice, proposed rules, current rules, & a link to sign up to testify are all posted athttp://www.mass.gov/eohhs/gov/laws-regs/masshealth/masshealth-proposed-regs.html
