Health Benefits

You and your family come first

Building your career at Northeastern means being part of a community committed to helping you and your family thrive.

We do this by offering comprehensive health benefits and insurance programs, including high-quality medical plans and reimbursement accounts (also known as FSAs). These offerings are a significant component of your total compensation package at Northeastern.


Northeastern provides you with high-quality medical plans through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA), all of which provide comprehensive coverage through a large network of doctors and hospitals. There are no limits for pre-existing conditions, and preventive services such as routine physicals are covered 100 percent.


The two dental plans offered through Delta Dental of Massachusetts give you access to dentists on both the PPO and Premier nationwide networks.


The Northeastern Vision Plan, administered by EyeMed, offers a no-cost annual eye exam; allowances for eyeglass frames, lenses, and contact lenses; and discounts on eye procedures.
