Children and Adults with Special Needs

Tufts Health Plan provides benefit explanation and clinical support to members and their dependents who have special needs. To better understand the benefits you may be eligible for, log on to check your benefits, refer to your Evidence of Coverage document, or contact a Member Services Specialist.

In addition, we've put together a list of local, regional and national organizations, which provide support, information and resources for both people with special health needs and those who care for them.
