Financial Counseling/Assistance

Financial Assistance

You may apply for financial assistance by requesting assistance from the Financial Counselor’s office located in Patient Access in the Main Lobby or by contacting
781-624-4329. Other programs include MassHealth and Medical Hardship.
Please call 781-624-4329 for eligibility information and verification of requirements.

This financial assistance program does not include physicians’ fees. Physicians will bill you separately for their services. Along with your private physician, services may be provided to you and billed by anesthesiologists, pathologists, radiologists, and other specialists.

Notice of Hospital Financial Assistance

Availability

Patients may apply for financial assistance for medically necessary service. Non-medically necessary services, such as elective cosmetic surgery and the private room differential, are excluded from consideration for financial assistance.

Financial Criteria

You may be eligible for financial assistance through a public assistance program, including Commonwealth Care, MassHealth, and Health Safety Net.

Eligibility for these programs is determined by comparing your family size and family income with the MassHealth Income Standards and Federal Poverty Guidelines — see the table below:
