Need help with health insurance
« on: December 14, 2015, 10:50:44 AM »
Anyone familiar with Tufts HealthPlan HMO? I have a PPO with Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA with my current employer. The new company has a Tufts HMO. My primary care participates, but a couple of my specialists do not.

I have not had an HMO in a long time and even though my PPO is a high deductible plan, it works for me. It isn't feasible to buy it through the MarketPlace in NH, though.

Should I be concerned about getting referrals and such?

If you weren't able to get a referral to your non-par specialist would you be able to pay out of pocket or willing to switch specialists?  Also if you have money left in your HSA that is yours and can be used for this.
