Feel secure with the medical and dental benefits @ Harvard

Quality and affordability are the hallmarks of Harvardís medical and dental plans. The University offers comprehensive health and dental coverage, with health plan options from top-rated provider Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and the Universityís own Harvard University Group Health Plan. Employees may choose from:

  • Two health maintenance organization (HMO) plans
  • Two point-of-service (POS) plans
  • One preferred provider organization (PPO) plan for out-of-state employees

Delta Dental provides Harvardís dental care program, offering both in-network and out-of-network coverage. More than 96 percent of Massachusetts dentists participate in the plan, which provides full coverage for preventive care and substantial coverage for a wide range of other dental services.

Harvard also offers a comprehensive vision care plan at very competitive prices with Davis Vision.

Harvardís health plans are competitively priced, and Harvard goes a step further to help employees with certain out-of-pocket medical costs with its Flexible Spending Accounts and a unique Medical Copayment Reimbursement Program, designed to help some employees with high copayment expenses. These are some of the ways that Harvard tries to keep employees and their families healthy Ė and fiscally fit.

Please remember – this site has been designed to acquaint you with the general features of the Harvard University benefit plans. Every attempt has been made to summarize these programs accurately. In all cases, the actual provisions of each benefit plan will govern if there is any inconsistency between this site and Harvard's formal plans or contracts.
