About the Mass General Brigham Health Plan network
Nearly all providers currently seen by Mass General Brigham employees are in the Mass General Brigham Health Plan network, and the Mass General Brigham Health Plan team continues to recruit additional providers.
Tier 1 and Tier 2 provider services
Both Plus PPO and Select offer employees the choice between two tiers of network providers.
Tier 1 - Preferred Doctors and Hospitals (Includes Mass General Brigham Providers)
Tier 2 - Non-Preferred Doctors and Hospitals
Our health plans have differentiated between “preferred providers” and “non-preferred providers” for many years, although the use of the terms “Tier 1” and “Tier 2” are new in 2019.
What you'll pay for care
Doctor and Hospital Level Typical Cost Sharing* Tier 1: Preferred Providers and Hospitals $ Tier 2: Non-Preferred Providers and Hospitals $$ Out-of-Network Providers and Hospitals $$$
Plus PPO only; Out-of-network coverage is limited to emergency and urgent care for Select members
*Tiering does not apply for employees who live out-of-area, so Tier 1 cost-sharing applies to all services delivered by a network provider (Tier 1 or Tier 2). See your Schedule of Benefits under Plan Documents for specific cost sharing details.
Services not tiered
There are certain services that have no tiering, which means you will pay the Tier 1 cost-sharing if you see a network provider. They include:
- Chiropractic care
- Physical therapy/Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Mental health care or substance use care
