Tufts Health Plan Launches Lifespan Premier Choice, Bringing Quality and More Affordable Care to Rhode Island

Building on their shared commitment to providing access to high-quality, affordable health care, Lifespan, Rhode Island’s largest health system, and Tufts Health Plan have collaborated to introduce Lifespan Premier Choice, a first-of-its-kind tiered network health plan.

In a tiered network plan, hospitals and affiliated physicians are grouped into different levels or tiers, and members pay different amounts for copayments, coinsurance and/or deductibles based on the tier designation of their health care provider. With Lifespan Premier Choice, all providers in the Lifespan health system have been designated Tier One, the lowest priced tier, due to their high quality and cost efficiency.
