Did you know workers with disabilities can purchase health insurance and receive almost all of the benefits offered through MassHealth Standard? Thanks to CommonHealth, individuals with disabilities in Massachusetts need not choose between vital healthcare benefits and potential job opportunities. CommonHealth is a MassHealth program available to individuals with disabilities who are not eligible for MassHealth Standard. CommonHealth can help promote self-sufficiency by providing low-cost health coverage to workers with disabilities.
