How WellSense MassHealth plans work

MassHealth is a Medicaid plan available to qualifying Massachusetts residents. MassHealth members don’t pay monthly fees or deductibles. Plus, depending on your age, income and health, you may not have to pay anything—or just a small fee—for your prescriptions.

Managed Care Organization (MCO)
We work with providers across the state to offer MassHealth to our members through our WellSense Essential MCO. The MCO has its own provider network that includes primary care providers, specialists, behavioral health providers, and hospitals.

Accountable Care Organizations (ACO)
We partner closely with key providers throughout the state to offer eight unique plans that provide coordinated care to our members. Membership in these plans is based on your primary care provider.
