Tufts Health Plan, Tenet reach new multi-year agreement

A new multi-year agreement between Tufts Health Plan in Massachusetts and Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare means Tufts enrollees may continue receiving care at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester (Mass.) and Framingham (Mass.)-based MetroWest Medical Center, both of which are owned by Tenet, according to a Worcester Telegram and Gazette report.

The new agreement, which came just as the current contract was set to expire, puts an end to the argument about how much Tufts will reimburse Tenet for patient care, according to the report.

Although details of the agreement have not been released, the agreement "succeeds in keeping healthcare costs as low as possible for Tufts Health Plan members and their employers while ensuring that the hospitals are appropriately rewarded for providing high quality patient care in the Worcester and MetroWest communities," according to the report.
