Frequently Asked Questions

In situations where a patient does not have insurance, patients may be eligible for free or reduced cost of health care services through various state public assistance programs as well as the hospital financial assistance programs (including but not limited to MassHealth, the premium assistance payment program operated by the Health Connector, the Children’s Medical Security Program, the Health Safety Net, and Medical Hardship). Such programs are intended to assist low-income patients taking into account each individual’s ability to contribute to the cost of his or her care. For those individuals that are uninsured or underinsured, the hospital will, when requested, help them with applying for either coverage through public assistance programs or hospital financial assistance programs that may cover all or some of their unpaid hospital bills. You can find more information on our financial assistance policies or speak to a financial counselor at 978-937-6700, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

If you would like more information about what your care might cost you or the hospitals’ financial assistance policy, please contact the Financial Clearance office at 978-937-6180, Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 5:00pm or email PAEstimates@tuftsmedicine.org
