Quality Coverage Your Clients Can Depend On

Publish Date

With high-quality coverage, excellent benefits and services, extra discounts, and a commitment to excellence, you can feel good about recommending Tufts Health Plan Medicare Advantage plans to your clients. 

These are just some of the reasons our plans stand out: 

  1. 5 out of 5 Stars for Quality: Tufts Health Plan Medicare Advantage HMO plans received Medicare’s highest rating for quality—5 out of 5 Stars—for the 8th year in a row! Our plan is the only Medicare Advantage HMO plan in Massachusetts to receive a 5-Star rating for 2023, and no other Massachusetts Medicare Advantage plan has ever received 5 Stars 8 years in a row! Our Star rating reflects how easy it is for members to get the checkups, screenings, and information they need to stay healthy. A plan receives a 5-Star rating only by providing exceptional service to their members in many different areas including customer service, member satisfaction, health care quality, and getting appointments quickly. Plus, because of our 5-Star rating, your clients can still enroll in our Medicare Advantage HMO plans–Even if they already selected another plan.
  2. $0 Monthly Premiums: Our HMO plans and our Access PPO plan are available with premiums as low as $0 a month. 
  3. Prescription Drug Savings: With Rx drug coverage included, our plans offer members great ways to save on their prescription drug costs, such as:
    • $0 copay for Tier 1 drugs at preferred pharmacies
    • $0 vaccines on Tier 6, including Shingrix
    • Savings of up to $212 a year on prescription drug costs by using OptumRx home delivery
  4. $150 Eyewear Discount: Members can get up to $150 toward the full retail price (not sale price) for eyeglasses, prescription lenses, frames, and/or contact lenses from a provider in the EyeMed Vision Care Network (includes more than 26,000 eye care providers, including national chains such as LensCrafters®, Pearle Vision®, and Target® Optical), or up to $90 from a store not in the EyeMed network. (Discounts can’t be combined.)
  5. Up to $500 to Stay Fit: Our Wellness Allowance benefit helps members lead a healthy lifestyle. And it pays them back:
    • Depending on the plan, members can get up to $350 each year for fees they pay towards membership in a qualified health or fitness club; wellness programs; acupuncture; fitness classes such as yoga, Pilates, tai chi, or aerobics, and much more!1
    • Plus, members can use their Weight Management reimbursement to reach their weight loss goals! Members can get up to $150 toward the program fees of WeightWatchers® or hospital-based weight loss programs. 
  6. Hearing Aid Discount: With copays ranging from $250 to $1,150 for each hearing aid, members can choose from 5 levels of hearing aids from Standard level to Premier. Members are covered for up to 2 hearing aids per year, 1 hearing aid per ear, provided by Hearing Care Solutions (HCS). Members are also covered for a $0 hearing aid evaluation once per year.3 To find an HCS provider, visit hearingcaresolutions.com/tuftshealthplanNote: Hearing aid benefit may not apply if members receive their benefits from a current or former employer.
