Tufts Health One Care

Plan overview for providers

Through the One Care initiative, MassHealth and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) seek to integrate care for people who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. 

Tufts Health One Care simplifies care by providing MassHealth and Medicare benefits through one plan and one ID card for eligible individuals. Individuals are eligible for Tufts Health One Care if they are Massachusetts Medicaid beneficiaries between the ages of 21 and 64 who are also eligible for Medicare due to a disability; CMS and MassHealth jointly determine eligibility.


Tufts Health One Care combines Medicare and Medicaid benefits into one expanded benefit package, including community-based long-term services and supports (LTSS), to maximize enrollees’ independence and well-being. Tufts Health One Care includes free coverage for services, such as:

  • Community health workers
  • Community support services (CSS)
  • Day habilitation
  • Group adult foster care
  • Home care/Homemaker services
  • Home health care services
  • Home modifications
  • Nurse midwife services
  • Peer support/Counseling/Navigation
  • Personal care assistants
  • Program of assertive community treatments (PACT)
  • Respite care


CMS and MassHealth require that all providers contracted to serve One Care enrollees receive training on certain elements of the program, covering topics such as an introduction to the program, cultural competence, and contemporary models of disability.
