About MIT Traditional Health Plan
With the MIT Traditional Health Plan, you and all of your covered family members will choose primary care providers (PCPs) at MIT Medical/Cambridge or MIT Medical/Lexington at Lincoln Laboratory.
About MIT Choice Plan
The MIT Choice Plan offers flexibility if MIT Medical is not convenient for all family members. With Choice, you can choose the convenience, lower copays, and quality of care that come with having a PCP at MIT Medical, but one or more of your family members can choose PCPs from the multistate HMO Blue New England network, or use out-of-network providers subject to deductible and coinsurance.
About Blue Care Elect Preferred
Blue Care Elect Preferred is a PPO plan administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts that covers you and eligible family members for care at MIT Medical or anywhere else in the United States. Unlike the MIT Traditional or Choice plans, Blue Care Elect Preferred does not require that you have a PCP in New England.
If your spouse is older than 65…
If your spouse/partner is older than 65 when you retire before age 65, he or she will not be eligible for coverage by the MIT Traditional or Choice plans or by Blue Care Elect Preferred. However, he or she will have the option of enrolling in MIT's Medicare supplemental plan or Medicare HMO plan.
