Ancillary Benefits

Effective, preventive health care tools

Dental and vision plans may lower medical claims costs in the long run. Early symptoms of high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diseases can be detected during a routine eye exam before showing up in a physical.

Employers who offer dental and vision can lower their FICA contributions by taking advantage of Section 125, which allows employees to pay for these benefits with pre-tax dollars.

Dental benefits

Employers can save on their premium when they combine medical and dental coverage, thanks to our collaboration with Northeast Delta Dental.

Tufts Health Freedom Plan customers can save when they combine health and dental coverage. Enjoy savings of 1% on medical and 5% on dental plans.

Tufts Health Freedom Plan and Northeast Delta Dental have joined forces to improve the health of their members while controlling the rising costs of health care. Working together, we've identified opportunities to integrate medical and dental data to achieve better health outcomes for our members, especially those with chronic conditions. The benefit is two-fold—lower medical premiums1 and overall better health for employees.

Vision discounts through EyeMed

Our plans enable members to receive discounts on vision correction services and eyewear from EyeMed participating providers.

Members have access to the EyeMed Vision Care network, which features more than 24,000 eye care providers that can offer discounts on prescription glasses, contact lenses, LASIK surgery and more.

The dental discount for groups with 2-100 enrolled is only available for Northeast Delta Dental’s NextGen products. The health plan discount applies to employer groups with more than 50 full-time equivalents as defined under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). All existing discounts will continue into the following year provided that employer groups remain contracted with both Northeast Delta Dental and Tufts Health Freedom Plan.
