Senior Care Options are voluntary programs that are available to anyone 65 and older who qualifies for MassHealth Standard. Once enrolled, a member may dis-enroll any month of the year.
SCOs are comprehensive health plans which provide a fully integrated geriatric model of care. Benefits include medical, hospital, behavioral health, Medicare prescription drug and MassHealth prescription drug coverage--all in one plan. Some additional benefits are: transportation to medical appointments; home- and community-based services; and Geriatric Services Support Coordination (GSSC). SCO programs authorize, deliver, and coordinate all services covered by Medicare and Medicaid and also include care coordination. There are no co-pays for members enrolled in SCO.
GLSS provides GSSC to SCO members in our catchment area. GLSS has a contract with UnitedHealthcare SCO, Commonwealth Care Alliance SCO, Senior Whole Health, Fallon Navicare, and Tufts Health Plan SCO.
