Helping MassHealth Enrollees with Behavioral Health Challenges and Complex Long-term Service and Support Needs

The Central Community Health Partnership (Central CHP) is dedicated to helping MassHealth enrollees with Behavioral Health challenges or complex Long-term Service and Support (LTSS) needs overcome barriers that interfere with quality of life and good health.

Working closely with ACO’s (Accountable Care Organizations), healthcare providers and social service agencies, we coordinate services for eligible MassHealth members to ensure seamless access to the care they need.

Community Partners in Central Massachusetts Providing Integrated Care to Improve Quality and Access to Services

With over 200 years of collective experience, the four partners of the Central CHP – AdCare, LUK, Inc., Open Sky Community Services (formerly Alternatives and The Bridge) and Venture Community Services – make it easy for ACO’s and their members to achieve their goals.

We have a wealth of expertise serving people with medical and behavioral health needs, developmental and intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, brain injury, homelessness and other complex challenges. Our deep roots in Central Massachusetts mean we know the region’s available resources, and how to access them.

Allowing ACOs and MCOs to Deliver More Efficient and Cost-Effective Services

The Central CHP’s collaborative group of partners coordinate member care so that the right services and supports are available at the right time to improve quality of care, increase member satisfaction and conserve costs. We provide both Behavioral Health and Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Community Partner services.

By streamlining care through collaborations across service systems, and working closely to engage members, we forge the connections necessary to ensure that people with complex health care needs have access to the most timely and effective resources.
