Dental and vision products to be offered to employer clients for group coverage beginning July 2024
Canton, Mass., January 4, 2024 — Point32Health, the parent company of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan, today announced an expansion of its portfolio to include Point32Health Dental and Point32Health Vision. The new dental and vision products will initially be offered to Harvard Pilgrim’s commercial clients with 51 or more eligible members for enrollment in July 2024.
“As Point32Health continues to evolve, our portfolio of products and services are also growing to support employers’ interest in offering comprehensive benefits to current and prospective employees,” said Phil Barr, president, markets at Point32Health. “We believe strongly that our new dental and vision products will deliver greater value to our employer clients with more opportunities to support their workforce.”
With this expansion, employers will have the opportunity to offer a more convenient and fully integrated benefits package through a single carrier to their employees. This approach also reduces the employer’s burden of managing multiple partners leading to enhanced account service and support.
The new products feature:
- Broad coverage for preventive, restorative and orthodontia services
- Convenient access to care from 350,000 dental locations through one of the largest PPO networks nationwide
- Comprehensive benefits for exams, lenses and frames
- Benefits may be used at national retailers and independent providers, as well as leading online providers
When combined with Harvard Pilgrim’s medical plans, employer clients will also have access to additional cost savings and bundled discounts. While the initial rollout only includes Harvard Pilgrim’s commercial clients with 51 or more eligible members, the goal is to eventually offer the new products to other lines of business.
