Medicare Savings Programs Outreach Materials Kit

Outreach Materials For Medicare Savings Programs

This outreach tool kit was developed for organizations, groups and individuals working to raise awareness about the expansion of Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) in Massachusetts (also known as "MassHealth Buy-In"). Whether you are a SHINE Counselor, advocate, work at a local Council on Aging (COA), or Aging Services Access Point (ASAP), we hope this landing page will help you access the materials you need faster!

Thank you for your help in spreading the word about this important program that will improve the economic security for thousands of older residents and people living with disabilities.

As materials are added or changed, this page will reflect those updates.
