We calculate the Higgs-boson mass spectrum and the corresponding mixing of the Higgs states in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). We assume a mass-hierarchy with heavy SUSY particles and light Higgs bosons. To investigate this scenario, we employ an effective-field-theory approach with a low-energy Two-Higgs-Doublet Model (2HDM) where both Higgs doublets couple to right-handed up- as well as right-handed down-type fermions. We perform a one-loop matching of the MSSM to the 2HDM and evolve the parameters to the low energy scale by exploiting two-loop renormalization group equations, taking the complex parameters into account. For the calculation of the pole mass, we compare three different options: one suitable for large charged Higgs mass, one for low charged Higgs mass, and one approximation that interpolates between these scenarios. The phase dependence of the mass of the lightest neutral Higgs boson can be sizeable, i.e. of the order of a couple of GeV depending on the scenario. In addition, we discuss the CP composition of the neutral Higgs bosons.
