MIT Traditional Health Plan

The MIT Traditional Health Plan is a comprehensive plan designed around the services provided by MIT Medical in Cambridge and Lexington. 

The plan offers convenient access to a broad range of MIT Medical services and specialties delivered by staff of more than 100 physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers, and other health care professionals at our on-campus location.

What You Should Know

  • You and any family members covered under your plan choose a primary care provider at MIT Medical. That primary care provider—or PCP—will coordinate your medical care and provide referrals as needed.
  • You should review the plan rates.
  • You will be charged a $10 copayment for most visits to a healthcare provider.
  • You must obtain a referral from your PCP for visits to most healthcare providers.
  • You can avoid the $50 copayment for high-tech imaging such as a CT scan, MRI, or PET, at Shields MRI with a referral from your PCP. If you visit any other provider for these tests, you will be required to pay the $50 high-tech imaging copay.
