Total Choice

Total Choice is designed to give you the flexibility to "customize" a benefits program that meets your needs (and the needs of your family). Each year, you have the opportunity to change your coverage in response to new life events and your family’s changing needs.

Partners HealthCare provides core benefit coverage and also provides Choice Pay which you allocate toward the purchase of those benefits which best respond to your current needs. The amount of Choice Pay you receive varies and is based on your annual salary and health plan choices.

Retirement

You are enrolled in a core Cash Balance Retirement Plan (pension) that provides employer-paid contributions toward your retirement savings after completing one year of service (1,000 paid hours in 12 consecutive months). Upon hire you may also contribute to a Tax-Sheltered Annuity (403(b)) account, which permits you to save for retirement with the following vendors: Fidelity, TIAA-CREF, and Vanguard.

Medical Coverage

You have a selection of six plans, representing the full spectrum of health care program offerings from fee-for-service to HMOs: Blue Cross Blue Shield (Master Health Plus, Partners Plus, Partners Value), Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan, Neighborhood Health Plan and Tufts Health Plan.

You receive an additional Choice Pay allocation (only if you elect medical coverage) toward the purchase of health coverage, which varies depending on your level of coverage: employee only, employee + spouse/same-sex partner, employee + children, or family.

Prescription Drug Coverage

When you enroll in a Partners HealthCare medical plan, you will receive prescription drug coverage through Medco. Medco offers both retail and mail order drug coverage for a co-payment based on drug designation: generic, preferred brand and non-preferred brand.

Dental Coverage

You may select from two Delta Dental plans: Major and Basic Dental.

You receive an additional Choice Pay allocation (only if you elect dental coverage) toward the purchase of dental coverage, which varies depending on your level of coverage: employee only, employee + spouse/same-sex partner, employee + children, or family.
