Financial Assistance

Are you having trouble paying your hospital and physician organization bills? Please view the below resources available to our patients.

State Programs

If you live in Massachusetts, you may be able to get health insurance or help paying for your healthcare bills through state programs like MassHealth, the Health Connector, or the Health Safety Net.  Each program has different rules and income limitations.  To find out more and to apply:

  • Go to MAhealthconnector.org
  • Work with a Financial Coordinator at your hospital or health center.  Contact information for Tufts MC Financial Coordination is listed below.

Other states have health insurance programs as well. Visit HealthCare.gov for more details >

Tufts Medical Center Financial Assistance

Patients who have the means are expected to pay for services received at Tufts Medical Center. However, Tufts MC provides financial counseling and financial assistance to patients unable to pay for emergency and medically necessary care.  If you do not have insurance coverage or if you do not have enough insurance coverage to cover your care, you may qualify for a Tufts MC discount or payment plan.  An application along with supporting documentation may be required.

Important: Tufts MC does not discount patient co-payments, deductibles, or co-insurance.
