About Us

Our History

Founded in 1997 by Boston Medical Center, BMC HealthNet Plan and Well Sense Health Plan together employ nearly 500 people, each of whom has an opportunity to make a difference for the people and the communities around them. Our employees are committed to offering customer-focused, culturally competent and affordable health care coverage.

Since 1997, BMC HealthNet Plan has offered fully subsidized health insurance coverage through its MassHealth product to low-to-moderate-income individuals in Massachusetts through the state’s MassHealth (Medicaid) program. BMC HealthNet Plan is the largest MassHealth health plan in Massachusetts with 190,000 MassHealth members.

In 2006, BMC HealthNet Plan began participating in the state’s Commonwealth Care program, which makes subsidized, comprehensive, affordable health insurance coverage available to eligible Massachusetts residents. BMC HealthNet Plan offers the lowest premium price in the Commonwealth Care program.

Beginning in 2011, the Plan began enrolling individuals and their families and small businesses in its Commonwealth Choice/Employer Choice commercial products.

In 2012, Well Sense Health Plan, BMC HealthNet Plan's business name in New Hampshire, opened an office in Manchester, New Hampshire, becoming one of three health plans to manage care for New Hampshire Medicaid members.

Our mission is to serve Boston Medical Center and to assist and support Boston Medical Center’s mission in providing and enhancing access to effective, efficient medical care among low income, underserved, disabled, elderly and other vulnerable populations.
