State Policies & Initiatives: 
Medicaid & Employment

“The MassHealth demonstration is a statewide multi-faceted health reform effort. The demonstration was initially implemented in July 1997, and has developed over time through amendments and renewals reflecting new priorities and the enactment of the Affordable Care Act. The demonstration authorizes Medicaid income eligibility for certain categorically eligible populations including pregnant women, parents or adult caretakers, infants, children and individuals with disabilities, and provides premium subsidies to qualifying individuals who are enrolled in a Qualified Health Plan (QHP) consistent with levels provided under the demonstration prior to the Affordable Care Act.”

The fifth renewal was approved October 30, 2014. It expires June 30, 2019.
