Health Equity

Care Without Barriers.

Massachusetts hospitals and health systems work each day to advance care that is accessible and equitable to all people. MHA supports members as they strive to eliminate disparities and provide all community members with the highest level of healthcare.

  • A Historic Approach: the Medicaid Waiver

    In September 2022, the federal government approved a groundbreaking approach to Massachusetts’ Medicaid program. It includes a nation-leading approach to revolutionize how hospitals address health equity.

  • Hospital Community Benefits

    Community benefits — the health-related programs that hospitals provide outside their walls — are a key component of MHA members’ health equity efforts.
