Financial Assistance

Resources to help you manage your health care bills

State programs

If you live in Massachusetts, you may be able to get health insurance or help paying your health care bills through a state program like MassHealth, the Health Connector, or Health Safety Net. Each program has different rules and income limits.

 

Discounts

If you have medical bills because you do not have insurance, or because your health insurance did not cover your care, you may qualify for a discount.

Find out if you qualify for any of these discounts by using this screening tool.  

Read our full Financial Assistance Policy.

You may set up a 0% interest monthly payment plan for any bill, even a bill for a health insurance co-payment, co-insurance, or deductible. Log into Patient Gateway to set up today or call 617-726-3884 for details.

Please be aware self-pay estimates for scheduled elective self-pay services are required to be paid at 100% after the allowed 25% discount. Payment plans are for post-service bills.
