Senior Care Options (SCO) is a comprehensive health plan that covers all of the services normally paid for through Medicare and MassHealth, providing services through a senior care organization and its network of providers. It combines health services with social support services
What is Senior Care Options?
Senior Care Options (SCO) is a health insurance program for dually eligible Medicare and Medicaid recipients, 65 years of age or older. No one is required to join Senior Care Options. Enrollment is voluntary. 

In addition to health care benefits, members can receive Home Care Services through BayPath Elder Services. A team of health professionals from the Senior Care Options agency and BayPath Elder Services work collaboratively with the client and their loved ones to develop a plan of individualized care for each client. Services are provided by a network of medical and other professionals (including a primary care doctor, nurses, specialists, and a geriatric social support coordinator).

Important Facts to Know:

After you enroll in Senior Care Options, MassHealth will only cover services provided by your senior care organization and its network of providers. It will not cover services from other doctors or health care providers, except in an emergency.

If you enroll in Senior Care Options and then decide it is not right for you, you can end your enrollment and go back to regular MassHealth coverage at any time.
