Insurances Accepted

There are many different types of health insurance and each insurance company may offer multiple different plans to hundreds of employers and their employees.  For this reason, it is very important that you understand the unique components of your plan and ask your health plan or employer what care and services they will cover and what they expect you to pay for directly. The best way to reach your insurer is typically the member services number on your insurance card.

Below, we’ve listed the health insurance plans and products that are accepted at Tufts Medical Center. If your health insurance company or plan is not listed, please contact your health insurance provider to better understand your benefit plan and provider network available to you.

Many insurance plans have different levels of costs for their members depending on where they receive care. The information below can be used as a reference but you should check with your plan to see what level of coverage you will receive for any care provided by Tufts Medical Center. It is also important to check with your insurance plan to see if you need additional referrals and/or authorizations before getting care at Tufts MC.

The level of coverage you receive is determined by your health insurance provider. Some health insurance companies may use other companies to cover certain services such as mental health or transplant-related services.  Some services may not be covered by your insurance plan. Again, it is very important that you ask your health insurance provider or employer what care and services they will cover and what they expect you to pay for directly. 

*As of January 1, 2017, Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children will no longer be able to accept Tufts Direct, a public health insurance plan. Learn more >
