MassHealth COVID-19 Update: Changes to the Temporary Hardship Waiver of MassHealth Income Deductible

August 21, 2020

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY:

MassHealth members over the age of 65 will not be eligible for the temporary hardship waiver of MassHealth income deductible. At this time, individuals under the age of 65 who have been assessed a one-time deductible to establish eligibility for MassHealth CommonHealth may request a temporary waiver of the deductible due to financial hardship during the COVID-19 public health emergency period.
