Health Plans 2018

Tufts University offers three options through Tufts Health Plan so you can choose the plan that best fits your and your family's needs

Choosing the Right Plan for You

Use the 2018 Health Plan Comparison Chart to compare the benefits of all three plans side-by-side.

If you live or work in the Tufts Health Plan service area of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, or New Hampshire, you are eligible for any of the three plan options.

If you live outside the service area, you are eligible for either the Traditional Plan or the Value Plan.

  • Go to eServe to review, enroll in, or make changes to your benefits within 31 days of becoming eligible, a qualifying life event, or during Open Enrollment.

Plan Options

Quality Tiered Plan

The Quality Tiered Plan gives you the option to use any provider in the Tufts Health Plan Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) network, which includes all of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire. Your copayments will be lower when you see a Tier 1 or "Tufts University Preferred" provider.

Includes a value-based pharmacy option with no copayment on medications for certain chronic conditions.

Traditional Plan

With the Traditional Plan, you can see any provider - in or out of the Tufts Health Plan network - without a referral. You’ll pay the same deductible for any office visit with any provider in the Tufts Health Plan network.

Includes a standard pharmacy benefit.

Value Plan

The Value Plan has the highest copayments and a deductible for some services. In exchange, you are covered to see any provider in or out of the Tufts Health Plan network.

Includes a value-based pharmacy option with no copayment on medications for certain chronic conditions.
