Tufts Health Plan
Benefits eligible employees who live outside of the Tufts Health Plan service area (MA, RI, NH) can enroll in either the Traditional Plan or the Value Plan (out of Network). Details in the Out-of-Area coverage are on the Tufts Health Plan website (see Out Of Area Providers).
The Tufts Health Plan network (in MA, RI, NH) consists of 110 hospitals and more than 51,000 providers. Cigna’s national PPO Network offers more than more than nearly 800,000 PCPs and specialists and 6,000 hospitals.
When obtaining services in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire, you must use a Tufts Health Plan network provider to receive the in-network level of benefits. When obtaining services in all other states, you must use a Cigna PPO network provider to receive the in-level network of benefits. We recommend the employee call Tufts Health Plan to discuss provider options: 844-516-5790.
To ensure the employee is enrolled in the “Out-of-Area” Group, the employee must:
1. Confirm/Update their home address in eServe
2. Notify Tufts Support Services of that the address is “Out-of-Area” and request for HR Benefits to have Tufts Health Plan enrolled into an “Out-of-Area” group
