We strive to offer our members the latest in proven medical technologies by reviewing current scientific evidence and considering expert physician opinion when we develop our medical policies. Each month, our Medical Policy Group meets to review the policies for a specific specialty. We incorporate input from the Massachusetts Medical Society, specialty societies, national technology review organizations and community physicians in the development and review of all policies.
