The Massachusetts Medicaid Policy Institute

The Massachusetts Medicaid Policy Institute (MMPI)—a program of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation—is an independent and nonpartisan source of information and analysis about the Massachusetts Medicaid program, “MassHealth.” MMPI’s mission is to promote the development of effective Medicaid policy solutions through research and policy analysis. MMPI promotes broad understanding of MassHealth and its interrelatedness with other health care programs for low income people, and seeks to create a rigorous and thoughtful public discussion of the program’s successes and the challenges ahead. It collaborates with a wide spectrum of policy makers, legislators, researchers, providers, advocacy groups, consumer organizations, business and other stakeholders.

In recognition of 50 years of the Medicaid program, MMPI produced an interactive timeline of key milestones in the program's Massachusetts history. Click here to access the timeline.
