For Your GIC Patients
Health plans offered to members of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Group Insurance Commission (GIC) are designed to promote quality and efficient health care.
Members of the GIC’s Navigator and Spirit plans, offered by Tufts Health Plan, save on their out-of-pocket health care costs by paying lower copayments when they receive non-emergency covered services from Tier 1 hospitals and physicians.
To help GIC plan members manage their out-of-pocket costs and in support of the GIC’s tiered plan design to promote efficient care, the GIC asks that, when appropriate, participating providers refer their GIC plan patients to Tier 1 providers.
In the online Provider Search tool at tuftshealthplan.com/providers, Tier 1 providers are clearly identified in the search results. Referring providers and GIC plan members can also narrow search results by selecting Tier 1 from the Tier options.
