Massachusetts will receive $4.6 million from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services as part of a federal program to control government healthcare costs by reducing unnecessary emergency room visits. The grant is part of a total $50 million in grants to 20 states. The goal is to help state Medicaid programs divert patients away from ERs and into other healthcare centers if they don't have medical problems requiring emergency treatment.
