About the Plan

Our Tufts Medicare Preferred Supplement Core plan is a private insurance that helps defray the costs of Original Medicare coverage. This plan pays the copays and coinsurance for most medical and hospital services covered through Medicare. When you join, you remain enrolled in Original Medicare, continue to pay your Medicare Part A and B annual deductibles, and can continue to see any doctor that accepts Original Medicare with no need for referrals.

Individuals who join a Tufts Medicare Preferred Supplement plan may be eligible for a discounted premium. The discount is available to individuals 65 and older who join a Supplement plan within six (6) months of acquiring their Medicare Part B coverage for the first time. The discounted premium begins with your plan's initial effective date and applies as follows: 15% off your premium for months 1 through 12, 10% off your premium for months 13 through 24, and 5% off your premium for months 25 through 36. After month 36, the discount ends and that year's premium rate will apply. This discount does not apply to the premium for the optional Tufts Health Plan dental add-on coverage or employer group membership.
