March 29, 2018  

Providence, RI – The Annual Plan Change Opportunity for Rhode Islanders covered by a Medicaid managed care plan is underway, giving families and individuals the opportunity to change from their existing health plan. Tufts Health Plan entered the state’s Medicaid market last fall with its new product, RITogethergiving Medicaid members in the state a new choice for the first time in years.

“As thousands of Rhode Islanders who are already our members can attest, our Medicaid plan brings great value to their lives,” said Helene Forte, Tufts Health Plan’s vice president for emerging markets. “We work directly with our members to make sure they get the care they need and fully understand their benefits, as well as the tools, resources, and programs that are available to them.”

By choosing RITogether, Medicaid beneficiaries see the integration of their primary and behavioral health care through Tufts Health Plans’ member-focused care management programs. Tufts Health Plan is nationally recognized for its commitment to providing innovative, high-quality health care coverage and continually ranks among the top health plans in the country based on quality and member satisfaction.

Medicaid members enrolled in RIte Care, Medicaid Expansion, and Rhody Health Partners will receive a mailed letter explaining the opportunity to change health plans, if they choose, during the plan change opportunity period running February 1 through May 31, 2018.

Rhode Islanders interested in changing their Medicaid plan during the open enrollment period can call HealthSourceRI at 855-840-4774, or complete and mail the form enclosed with their open enrollment letter.

Members who enroll in Tufts Health Plan’s RITogether plan will receive all the benefits they currently receive in RIte Care, Rhody Health Partners, or Rhody Health Partners Expansion, in addition to unique extras.
