Dear Case Managers:
This is the third in a series of regular emails from Community Research Initiative (CRI), which administers the Massachusetts HIV Drug Assistance Program (HDAP). We'll be sending important information and tips regularly. We hope you find this helpful, and welcome any questions, concerns, or suggestions. 
Did you know  that HDAP's Comprehensive Health Insurance Initiative (CHII) program can
pay for many different types of health
insurance premiums?
CHII can pay for:
  • Private health insurance premiums
  • Health Connector premiums
  • MassHealth and ConnectorCare premiums
  • Medicare Part D premiums
  • COBRA premiums
  • Employee premium deductions
  • Medicare Advantage (Part C) premiums for plans that include prescription drug coverage (*NEW for 2019*)
CHII enrollees should send their premium statements to HDAP/CHII every month. A client must be active in HDAP in order to receive CHII payments.

For further information, please contact the CHII department by calling 617.502.1700 and following the prompts to speak to a CHII representative.
