Neighborhood Health Plan (NHP) has been providing more affordable health care and health care benefits to our members since 1997. NHP embodies the egalitarian and non-profit spirit that NASRO closely identifies with. NHP is now the third largest HMO in Massachusetts, with over 260,000 members providing health care through a network of 70 hospitals, 4,300 primary care providers and 13,000 specialists throughout all of the eastern and central counties of the state and part of western Massachusetts. Now part of Partners HealthCare, NHP maintains a solid balance sheet and may become an even more important part of Massachusetts health care in the years ahead, without losing its unique management style.
NASRO rates the Neighborhood Health Plan as our best buy because of the lower premium costs it brings our individual and small business members, while having a wide choice of benefit plans, and a rapidly expanding number of doctors from internal medicine, family practice and pediatrics. All with no deductible for most plans, low administrative costs, access to many times the same doctors and hospitals as the more well known plans and the most affordable monthly prices in the state year after year.
Their primary care providers include the major multi-specialty groups such as Harvard Vanguard throughout greater Boston, Brigham & Women’s in Newton, Southborough Medical Group, South Shore Medical Group and the Lahey Clinic, as well as Brigham & Women’s, Beth Israel, Boston University Medical Center. All of Boston’s specialty hospitals and their many of their specialists are also part of the plan.
No one likes to change doctors, but with monthly health insurance premiums costing more than many house mortgages, and NHP offering much lower premium costs for greater health insurance benefits, you may want to through investigate the quality of health care that is available to members though NHP. We are fortunate that greater Boston is one of the top five centers for medical excellence in the United States. There are many excellent physician groups to choose from.
NASRO is also now able to offer group dental plans with Delta Dental to accompany our group health plans with Neighborhood Health Plan.
