About Health Care Partnerships and Flexible Services
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts received a five-year waiver (2023-2027) from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services to improve the ways in which MassHealth provides care to its members. Among many other elements, it includes funding for the Flexible Services Program where accountable care organizations (ACOs) may pay for health-related social needs like nutrition and housing supports. Project Bread has partnered with multiple ACOs to receive referrals for food insecure individuals who have a medical diagnosis. Our staff conduct assessments and develop individualized nutrition service plans to provide these members with good and services to improve their nutrition and food security.
