Wareham Pediatrics is pleased to announce, beginning March 1, 2018, that we have chosen the TUFTS HEALTH TOGETHER WITH BOSTON CHILDREN’S ACO. You should have already received something in the mail from MassHealth regarding this. Most of our patients will be automatically enrolled in this plan through MassHealth. If for some reason you haven’t received this information from MassHealth yet or MassHealth didn’t automatically assign you to the TUFTS HEALTH TOGETHER WITH BOSTON CHILDREN’S ACO, you will need to contact MassHealth immediately in order to avoid any interruptions in care. They can be reached at 800-841-2900.
Please see our front desk and this ACO enrollment brochure if you have any questions.

If you are in need of state sponsored assistance, read our insurance handout for information on some plans. All of these facilities offer the opportunity to apply for state-sponsored insurance and in some cases get counseling about their choices. In most cases, individuals who do not have insurance or do not have adequate coverage could get assistance from one of these locations. Each place listed gives generally the same type of information and support, but the way in which you would connect with them is different. For example, Healthcare For All is accessed by phone only as well as Mass Family Voices. PACE and Tobey Hospital give the patient the chance to go into an office and speak to someone one-on-one, which if the person does not have internet access or if a parent does not read, that can be a helpful choice. The Health Connector may be for the more savvy consumer who wants to go online look at all their options read through all the literature and then make a decision.
Families who qualify for Mass Health should read this information about how to keep your coverage up to date.
Be sure to bring your updated insurance card and co-pay to your visit. If you have questions about your insurance coverage, our billing office can assist you. If you do not have insurance and are in need of assistance, our care coordinator can help identify resources in the community to help you gain coverage.
