Our coordinated approach to healthcare
The PCP you choose works with certain plan specialists he/she uses for referrals, called a “referral circle,” to provide the medical care you need. This means in most cases, you will not have access to the entire Tufts Medicare Preferred HMO network, except in an emergency or urgent care situations, or for out-of-area renal dialysis. If you obtain routine care from out-of-network providers neither Medicare nor Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred will be responsible for the costs.
This coordinated approach to care helps ensure that you receive the right level of care in the right setting at the right time.
If you have coverage from an employer or union, joining Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred may change how your current coverage works. Read the communications your employer or union sends you. If you have questions, visit your fomer employee's website, or contact the office listed in their communications. Some employers may require you to send your application to them.
