We are currently offering the following types of insurance:
The MEC Plan
through the Freedom Care. The MEC plan will satisfy the IRS requirement for health insurance coverage as defined by the Affordable Care Act and prevent the employee from incurring the “Individual Mandate “penalty in 2018. The plan utilizes the First Health Network which is one of the nation’s largest networks with nearly 490,000 healthcare professionals. Please note that this plan is NOT minimum essential coverage for purposes of the individual health coverage requirements in Massachusetts.

The MEC Elevate Plan through Freedom Care provides more covered services such as coverage for Emergency Room Care and certain Diagnostic Tests and Imaging not covered under the MEC plan. This plan is available to residents of all fifty (50) states.
