Those options include Affordable Care Coverage, Katie Beckett, Medicaid for Elders and Adults with Disabilities (EAD) and Sherlock, which is Medicaid for working people with disabilities. We also determine eligibility for the Medicare Premium Payment Program for those with federal Medicare. 

Information on all of these programs can be found on Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) website. Click here to learn more.
