NEW HEALTH PLAN OPTIONS ADMINISTERED EXCLUSIVELY BY TUFTS HEALTH PLAN effective January 1, 2015
During this fall’s Benefits Open Enrollment, all employees can choose between three (3) new health plan options. Each of the plans provides comprehensive coverage and all of them are administered exclusively by Tufts Health Plan.
Tufts Health Plans
Since these are all NEW plans, all benefit eligible employees will be required to make an ‘active’ health plan election during this year’s HR Benefits Open Enrollment in order to have coverage for 2015. Benefits eligible employees must elect a new health plan for 2015, otherwise coverage will be ‘waived’. The HR Benefits Office will be sending out additional reminders to staff and faculty to ensure that those who want or wish to retain health insurance will have coverage in calendar year 2015. Please note the existing health plans, offered by Tufts Health Plan (POS, EPO/HMO), Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (EPO/HMO) and Fallon Health Plan (EPO/HMO) will no longer exist as of December 31, 2014.
In order to ensure that all employees have an opportunity to learn about these new health plan choices, we are hosting over 40 on-campus meetings at various times and locations. Please click on the Tufts University Health Plan Education Meetings link below.
