Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) and the Malden Council on Aging (COA) are hosting their third and final MassHealth Renewal Day at the Malden Senior Center (7 Washington St.). This cost-free event is designed to help MassHealth members prevent any interruptions to their health coverage. Renewal Day will be held on Thursday, Feb. 15, 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. Non-Malden residents are also welcome. Translation services will be available.

While there will be other chances to receive help, this is your best opportunity to complete an application with a trained and certified expert. All MassHealth members need to renew their coverage by April, following the end of the federal public health emergency. Residents receive a blue envelope from MassHealth notifying them when their renewal is due.

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.

Please try to bring to your session the following: 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 MVES at 781-324-7705, ext. 100.

Since 1975, MVES has supported older adults and people with disabilities so that they can continue living independently. Services include information and referral, management, home care, elder protective services, health insurance counseling, caregiver supports, transportation, and Meals on Wheels.
