REVISED - A Guidebook to Social Services for MassHealth ACOs

This guidebook is designed to help health care administrators and providers better understand the types of social services available in Massachusetts, the organizations that provide such services, and their key sources of funding. This resource is intended to facilitate greater coordination between these organization types, and especially with MassHealth ACOs as they seek to integrate, better coordinate with social services, improve health outcomes, and reduce health care costs.

Based on valuable feedback from stakeholders, this guidebook has been revised. Among the updates made to the guidebook, this version includes a new section on facilitating agencies that directly provide or provide linkages to multiple types of social services.
