Allies plan innovations and features:

  • Employers and members save on premiums compared to our full network plans.
  • ​Members choose a primary care provider (PCP) affiliated with Newton-Wellesley Hospital, the highest-ranking community hospital in Massachusetts by U.S. News and World Report, 2020-2021.
  • They have easy access to Newton-Wellesley’s PCPs and specialists—with special areas of expertise including cardiology, oncology, maternity services and women’s health, orthopedics, sports medicine, and more.
  • Members may be referred to Mass General Brigham’s renowned academic medical centers and specialty hospitals.
  • Allies Health Navigators help deliver a seamless health experience. They serve as a bridge between members and the benefits, services, providers, resources, and care they might need.
  • Members can get shortened wait times (within three business days from the primary care referral) for appointments with select specialists, including cardiology, orthopedics, dermatology, and gastroenterology.
  • There’s $0 cost sharing for virtual visits with primary care, specialists, behavioral health, and 24/7 urgent care.
  • Members can choose to get most of their care virtually by selecting the Virtual Health primary care practice at Newton-Wellesley. Patients of this practice can see a provider virtually within one business day upon request, schedule visits online, and pay $0 out of pocket for that visit. Of course, some in-person office visits may be necessary.
All Allies plans are available on a fully insured basis side-by-side with our Complete full network plans.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: These plans provide access to networks that are smaller than AllWays Health Partners’ full commercial HMO provider network. In Allies HMO plans, members have access to network benefits only from the providers in the Allies HMO network. In Allies Choice HMO plans, members have access to network benefits only from providers in the Choice HMO network, and members pay different levels of copayments, coinsurance, and/or deductibles depending on the tier of the provider delivering a covered service or supply. This plan may make changes to a provider’s benefit tier annually on January 1. Please consult the Allies HMO or the Allies Choice HMO provider directory to determine which providers are included in each plan’s network and, if applicable, the tier of those providers.
