Select Advantage HMO
A Limited Provider Network Option
Members have healthcare coverage within the Select Network—a limited network of providers and hospitals in Massachusetts. As with any HMO plan, you must select your primary care provider from the Tufts Health Plan Select Network.
With Tufts Health Plan Select Advantage HMO, many of your health care services are fully covered, or require only a copayment. Some services are subject to a deductible (see the following page). The deductible is the amount of money you need to pay out-of-pocket before the health plan begins to pay eligible claims.
Highlights of the Plan
- Preventive office visits are covered in full. Specialist consultations are covered with just a copayment. Office visits for the treatment and/or diagnosis of a condition may be subject to copayment and deductible.
- Emergency room care is covered subject to the plan’s deductible.
- A deductible applies to inpatient hospital care, day surgery, outpatient diagnostic services, and certain other health care services. Once you meet the deductible, the plan covers 100% of covered services that are subject to the deductible.
Emergency Medical Care Is Covered
Emergency medical care is covered subject to the plan’s deductible, whether or not you receive care from a provider in our network. Members do not need PCP referrals for emergency care in an emergency room.
In the event of a medical emergency, always seek care by going to the nearest medical facility or, if needed, call 911.
Please note: If you receive care in an emergency room but are not admitted as an inpatient, you or someone acting on your behalf should notify your PCP or Tufts Health Plan within 48 hours after you receive care.
