Outreach Program

Message from Mary Zatta, Former Outreach Coordinator-

If you have any questions about resources for seniors whether for yourself or a family member, please do not hesitate to call the senior center.  For many people, navigating the “system” is both challenging and tedious. One program that can be challenging is to enroll in is MassHealth. If you have any questions regarding your eligibility, below is a list of enrollment assisters who are trained and certified to help you apply for coverage, shop for plans and answer questions about such things as health care reforms, eligibility, and payments. This assistance is free for people of any income level. Most locations do require you to call ahead and make an appointment. If you call a hospital or community health center, ask for the Patient Financial Counselor Department for assistance.
