Information from MA Health Connector Regarding Impending Storm
Posted Monday, January 26, 2015
Given the state of emergency and statewide travel ban, the Health Connector’s call center offices in Boston and Worcester will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, January 27. However, consumers will still be able to call 1-877-MA-ENROLL from 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. for application and payment assistance. We will be leveraging a limited number of off-site customer service representatives to continue to assist consumers during this busy period.
Additionally, the payment deadline for February 1 coverage has been moved from Wednesday, January 28 to Friday, January 30 in recognition of the fact that the winter storm will impact our ability to operate at full capacity and accept in-person payments on Tuesday (and potentially Wednesday; we are currently planning to be open on Wednesday, but will re-evaluate based on the weather tomorrow afternoon). We want to ensure that we help as many people who selected a plan by Friday, January 23 complete the payment process for February 1 coverage. We are confident that we will be back to normal operations by Thursday, giving consumers two additional business days to pay for February 1 coverage.
Please continue to monitor the Health Connector’s website and Twitter account, as well as emails from this team, for the latest information. We will have an update about our Wednesday call center plans in this dashboard communication tomorrow afternoon.

The first line of defense is an easy one — hand washing. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention says keeping your hands clean is the one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness. Wet your hands, turn off the water and apply soap. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.

Manet on the Move
On Dec. 13, Manet's Quincy Medical Center (QMC) Primary Care team, HIV Case Managers and Prevention Specialists closed up shop at QMC, then spent the rest of the weekend moving. Our providers started seeing patients bright and early Monday morning, Dec. 15, in their new home in North Quincy. And our HIV Team opened their doors right on time Monday at our Snug Harbor/Germantown site.
"We're excited to welcome our patients to this beautiful North Quincy facility," says Lily Yung, MD, Lead Physician of the Manet QMC team. "We have settled in comfortably on the first floor. Come see us!"
Thanks to our fabulous Director of Facilities, Marsha Meade, and all our teams for making our commitment to uninterrupted care possible.
You can view more photos of our move - both moves - on Manet's Facebook page.

Manet Community Health Center is addressing the growing problem of opioid overdoses in South Shore communities with a free program to distribute a drug that has the potential to reverse overdoses and save lives. Manet’s effort is part of a pilot initiative by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Opioid Prevention and Reversal Project.
Presently, Manet has the largest team from Quincy to Brockton that distributes nasal naloxone (Narcan)—known as the anti-overdose drug—and trains area residents in its use on a daily basis by walk-in or appointment (call 857-939-4108). Anyone can receive the free training, whether or not they are a Manet patient. Evening hours are available.
