Commonwealth Care members get health services by enrolling in health plans. There are several plans to choose from. Each health plan offers the same medical benefits, plus some extras. Some plans are only available in certain parts of Massachusetts. Some plans cost more than other plans.
All Commonwealth Care health plans include:
• outpatient medical care (doctor's visits, surgery, radiology and lab, abortion, community health center visits)• inpatient medical care (hospitalization)• mental health and substance abuse services (outpatient and inpatient)• prescription drugs (pharmacy and mail service)• rehabilitation services (cardiac rehabilitation, home health aide, therapies, inpatient services up to 100 days per year)• vision care (exam and glasses every 24 months)• dental care* (*this benefit is only for people with incomes at or below 100% FPG)• emergency care including ambulance and out-of-state coverageThe health plan you choose may also offer extra services."
