Boston Children’s Hospital and physicians are participating with the list of insurance plans below. Participation in these plans is not a guarantee of payment or coverage. Many insurance companies require a referral or prior-authorization for coverage of services. If you would like to verify coverage or have questions regarding out of pocket expenses we recommend that you call the member services number on your insurance card or contact your employee benefits program for more information.

YOUR FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY: If you are enrolled in a tiered, high deductible or limited network your out of pocket expense will vary based on the provider and/or place of service (i.e. main campus vs. satellites), and provider of service. We recommend that you call your insurance carrier or your benefits office to determine your liability/out of pocket financial responsibility.
