Additional Information

This is a Medicare Advantage plan, also known as Medicare Part C. It provides you with all of your Medicare Part A and B benefits, as well as additional coverage not included in Parts A and B. By paying a monthly premium, you gain consistent co-payments and deductibles and a yearly out-of-pocket spending maximum. Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage is also included as a part of this plan. 

You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium. If you receive Social Security, Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) benefits, or Civil Service benefits, your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premium is already automatically deducted from your benefit payment. 

An HMO plan requires you to choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) who provides all of your routine treatment for common ailments and illnesses, while also coordinating your overall care. In most cases your PCP will work with a Referral Circle to coordinate your care. A Referral Circle is a network of specialists your PCP has selected to work with due to their expertise in their respective fields. This means that in most cases, you will not have access to the entire Tufts Medicare Preferred HMO network, except in emergency or urgent care situations, or for out-of-area renal dialysis. When your PCP can’t treat a specific illness or condition he or she will refer you to a specialist within this referral circle who can. Your specialists will communicate with your PCP to ensure you receive the right care at the right time. 

Rx is an abbreviation for a drug prescription. Plans with "Rx" in their names include prescription drug coverage, plans with "No Rx" in their names do not.  

The service area for this plan are: Barnstable, Bristol, Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth, Suffolk, Hampden, Worcester, or Hampshire Counties.
