Commonwealth Medicine (CWM) is the consulting division of UMass Medical School. The CWM Center for Health Care Financing (CHCF) helps state and local governments, primarily in Massachusetts, identify opportunities to increase savings and reimbursements through federal and other third party sources, establish effective savings and reimbursement programs and capitalize on all possible revenue streams. We identify opportunities for our clients to increase services and reduce the net cost of delivery.
The SSI State Supplement Program (SSP) is a joint program of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS), the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), and the Mass Commission for the Blind (MCB). The SSP provides state-funded supplemental payments to eligible aged, disabled and blind SSI recipients and to low income clients who are eligible for SSI but for income. SSP eligibility is an eligibility factor for certain related benefits, including SNAP and MassHealth.
CHCF began administering the SSP on behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in April, 2012. The implementation process is planned on an evolving multi-year schedule, comprising several phases of enhanced and additional operations. Our responsibilities include program management and operations, eligibility determination, payment calculation and issuance, client services, outreach projects, program integrity, quality control and ongoing program development. Program administration is dynamic, fast-paced, and continually progressing; success will require multi-tasking, internal and external collaboration, and the ability to meet deadlines and work under pressure.
