Fallon Community Health Plan, a Worcester-based insurer that has been expanding aggressively­ into Eastern Massachusetts, said it has struck an agreement with Partners HealthCare System to give members access to Partners teaching hospitals in Boston.

Under the deal, Fallon members enrolled in the insurer’s Select Care network, its largest health insurance offering, will have unrestricted access­ to Partners-owned Massachusetts­ General and Brigham and Women’s hospitals. Previously, Select Care members could visit Mass. General and Brigham and Women’s only for second opinions or specialty procedures.

“This is good for us and our members,” said Fallon vice president Christine Cassidy. “We’ve heard loud and clear that they want to get to Mass. General and Brigham and Women’s.”
