About Financial Assistance
Tufts Medicine Lowell General Hospital will assist our patients in obtaining financial assistance from public programs and other sources. The hospital has financial aid policies that are consistent with the mission and values of the organization and take into account each individual’s ability for payment, including offering payment plans. Our financial assistance program does comply with state and federal laws and regulation. Financial Counselors are available at 978-937-6700.
Lowell General Hospital will not pursue extraordinary collections actions against an individual without first using reasonable efforts to determine if such individual is eligible for financial assistance.
