Network Health to offer insurance through state program

Continue reading below

Medford-based Network Health, which provides health insurance for nearly 215,000 low- and moderate-income residents in Massachusetts, will be entering the commercial health insurance market by offering a half dozen plans through the Massachusetts Health Connector, the state’s online insurance marketplace, and through Network Health’s own website.

Sixteen-year-old Network Health was acquired in 2011 by Tufts Health Plan, a large nonprofit seller of commercial health insurance in Massachusetts. But Network Health, which is retaining its own brand, will offer plans through the Health Connector’s Commonwealth Choice program, which enables individuals, families, and small groups to compare plans available from the state’s major insurers and enroll online. Customers will be able to sign up for the products starting this month, with health coverage set to take effect March 1.
