There is a common misconception that MassHealth recipients receive free cremation or burial services or that the State will automatically pay $1100 towards the expenses.
This misinformation has been passed down and shared for many years. Unfortunately, some caregiver organizations may not be up to date on regulations regarding the benefit, and many families are told that help is available when it may not be.
Receiving MassHealth, SSI, or other State assistance does not qualify automatically for the $1100.
At Boston Cremation, we understand that many families need affordable cremation services. Our affordable “Just A Simple Cremation” for $1895 COMPLETE is available throughout Massachusetts.
