Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) and the Malden Council on Aging (COA) are hosting a second MassHealth Renewal Day at the Malden Senior Center (7 Washington St.). The event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 9, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. MassHealth members aged 65 years and up are invited to register for a one-on-one renewal session with a trained expert.
All MassHealth members need to renew their coverage during the next year, following the end of the federal public health emergency. During the peak of the COVID pandemic, MassHealth members were able to keep their benefits, but renewal is now required again. Residents will receive a blue envelope from MassHealth notifying them when their renewal is due.
“MVES and the Malden COA want to ensure that every older adult in our community retains their insurance benefits,” explains MVES CEO Lisa Gurgone. “Our certified counselors will be on hand to help members complete their renewal.”
For members who are not yet due for renewal, the counselors can provide guidance on their future renewal date, whether they need to update the information they’ve provided to MassHealth, eligibility and more.
“We want to make the renewal process as clear and seamless as possible for our residents,” notes Malden Senior Center Program Director Mikeneil Paul.
Please try to bring to your session your blue envelope from MassHealth and its contents, form of identification, social security number and proof of income, assets and insurance. Reservations are required. To sign up, please call Mystic Valley Elder Services at 781-324-7705, ext. 100.
