Why choose a PCP at MIT Medical?

With everything else you have to do, your routine healthcare needs can easily be pushed to the bottom of the to-do list. Miss half a day of of work to get an annual physical? Who has time for that?

But with a primary care provider (PCP) at MIT Medical, excellent medical care is just steps from where you work—on MIT’s main campus or just up the hill at Lincoln Laboratory. Get your physical exam and necessary lab tests—or pick up that prescription—and be back at work in your Cambridge or Lexington office within the hour. Not to mention that your copay will be half what you’d pay elsewhere. These are just a few of the reasons why more than half of all MIT employees who purchase an MIT-sponsored health plan choose an MIT Medical PCP.

What if MIT Medical isn’t convenient for all family members? No problem. With the MIT Choice Plan, you can enjoy the convenience, lower copays, and quality of care that come with having a primary care provider (PCP) at MIT Medical while one or more family members choose PCPs from the multistate HMO Blue New England network or use out-of-network providers subject to deductible and coinsurance.

With the MIT Choice Plan, you can try an MIT Medical PCP at no risk. Choose from among MIT Medical PCPs currently accepting new patients, and switch back to an outside provider at any time if you’re not satisfied.
