> Massachusetts MassHealth (Medicaid)
MassHealth pays for health care for certain low and medium income people living in Massachusetts who are under age 65 and who are not living in nursing homes or other long-term-care facilities. The Division of Medical Assistance (the Division) manages MassHealth. The Division offers health-care benefits directly or by paying part or all of your health-insurance premiums. Certain persons aged 65 or older may also be eligible for MassHealth if they are parents or caretaker relatives of children under age 19, or are disabled and working 40 or more hours a month. The Division will decide if you are eligible and give you the most complete coverage that you qualify for.
