Senior Care Options (SCOs) programs are voluntary programs that are available to anyone 65 and older who qualifies for MassHealth Standard.
Senior Care Options are comprehensive health plans which provide a fully integrated model of care. The goal of the Senior Care Options programs is to help their consumers remain in the community as independently as possible. Each consumer is assigned a Registered Nurse and a Case Manager, who help consumers navigate their needs to live as independent as possible. These programs use a team approach which include the consumer, any family members/friends the consumer wishes to include, medical providers, and other community agencies.
In addition to the plan’s medical benefits, some additional benefits include: Case Management, In-Home Services, $0 Copays for prescriptions & doctor visits, transportation for medical appointments, dental care (including dentures), vision benefits (including eyeglasses), hearing aids, and behavioral health services.
