The MPAA/MedWell Low Income Voucher & Scholarship Program is developed in partnership with MPAA and MedWell to supply cost-effective access directly or indirectly to patients that need financial assistance to enroll in the MA Medical Program. MPAA & MedWell aim to create goals, metrics, and measurable outcomes.
MPAA will screen patients through an Application Process which will be found at www.compassionforpatients.com and approved by MPAA Staff. Our goal is to reduce the negative financial impact on patients well-being.
Who will qualify for a Low Income Voucher through this program?
Target Populations: Seniors (Age Demographics), Communities disproportionately affected by the war on drugs as determined by the Cannabis Control Commission, Subsidized Housing or Homeless
Patients must supply their name, contact information, and one of the four pieces of documentation for verified financial hardship in order to qualify. This includes:
- Official MassHealth acceptance letter for the current year, or official MassHealth redetermination letter for the current year.
- SSI benefit verification letter for the current year,
- SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) statement from the current year OR;
- State or federal tax return from this year or last year, income may not exceed 300% of the federal poverty level.
Patients may supply demographic information for the purpose of measuring outcomes.
Applicants awarded approval for pre-qualification will be eligible for a Free Recommendation Voucher or a $50 Recommendation Voucher through a Massachusetts based MedWell location or through a Telehealth visit while CCC waivers are still in effect. MPAA will communicate awarded pre-qualification to MedWell prior to your MedWell visit. Scholarship recipients will be provided with an education packet with information and tools that will empower patients and caregivers to independently support their own well-being.
Limitations: MPAA has been provided 10 - Free Vouchers & 10 - $50 Vouchers (Total: 20) per calendar month by MedWell for the purposes of dispersing these vouchers to patients truly in need. MedWells Low-Income Vouchers (20 per month) will not roll over from month-to-month so in accordance with that stipulation, MPAA is hereby incentivized to effectively reach disparate populations in order to efficiently transfer these benefits to those that need it most.
