Health plan for disabled adults cut back in Mass.

As insurers balk, 5 counties are excluded from experiment

Massachusetts health insurers’ reluctance to join a national experiment to improve care for disabled lower-income adults has forced the state to scale back the program even before it starts.

Massachusetts is among the first states to roll out the national program, but half the insurers that were expected to participate backed out because they feared losing money. That will mean fewer options for patients when enrollment opens for the voluntary “One Care” program in October.
