New health plan for Massachusetts dual-eligible members

Effective Jan. 1, 2022, UnitedHealthcare Connected® for One Care (Medicare-Medicaid plan) will be available to individuals in Massachusetts who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid.

This UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Massachusetts plan provides dual-eligible members with a customized care plan and a single point of contact for all Medicare and MassHealth services. MassHealth has more information on member eligibility and overall plan benefits.

UnitedHealthcare Connected will be available for eligible individuals living in these counties: Bristol, Essex (partial), Franklin, Hampden, Hampshire, Middlesex, Plymouth, Suffolk and Worcester.

After Jan. 1, you’ll be able to verify the member’s enrollment through the UnitedHealthcare Provider Portal Eligibility and Benefits tool.
