Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred: New Plan Options for 2013

In 2013, Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred will begin offering medical and prescription drug coverage for a $0 monthly premium. Your patients who want peace of mind but might not use the plan often may want to consider this plan. In Barnstable, Bristol, Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth, Suffolk, and Worcester counties, this coverage is available through our new Tufts Medicare Preferred Saver Rx HMO plan. In Hampden and Hampshire counties, this coverage is through our Basic Rx HMO plan.

The Annual Enrollment Period for these new plans and all Tufts Medicare Preferred HMO plans begins October 15 and ends December 7. For more information about these plans, call 888-880-8699, ext. 1080.

In addition, for 2013, our new Tufts Medicare Preferred Senior Care Options (HMO SNP) plan will be available in Barnstable County for patients over 65 and on MassHealth Standard (with or without Medicare). Patients can join this plan all year long for coverage effective the following month. For more information about this plan, call 855-670-5938.
