Health Plans

Tufts University offers three options through Tufts Health Plan so you can choose the plan that best fits your and your family's needs. Tufts Health Plan maintains a microsite for Tufts employees where you can learn more about all three options.

Quality Tiered Plan

This plan gives you the option to use any provider in the Tufts Health Plan Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) network. Your copayments will be lower when you see a "Tufts University Preferred" provider. This plan also includes a value-based pharmacy option with no copayment on medications for certain chronic conditions.

Traditional Plan

If you don't want to worry about an in-network deductible or different provider tiers, this plan could be for you. You’ll have the same deductible for any office visit with any provider in the Tufts Health Plan network. It also provides a standard pharmacy benefit.

Value Plan

This 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. You also get a value-based pharmacy option with no copayment on certain medications for certain chronic conditions.

Choosing the Right Plan for You

Tufts Health Plan maintains a Health Plan Comparison Chart that you can use to compare the benefits of all three plans side-by-side.
