Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept my insurance?

We accept most plans, but suggest you check with your insurance provider before the visit, particularly regarding vaccines.  All non-covered traveler services will be the responsibility of the patient.

Do I need a referral to see a doctor in one of your clinics?

Most insurance plans require your primary care provider to submit a referral in order for your visit to be covered by insurance. Our fax number is 617-636-7100.

I am new to Tufts Medical Center. What do I need to do before my first appointment?

When making your appointment, please let the person you are talking to know that you are a new patient.   For your convenience, you will be scheduled for an appointment and registered as a patient at the same time.
