Rates and Insurance and Common Questions

Insurance Information

The Center currently takes all Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans and all and United Healthcare products (UBH, Harvard Pilgrim , Optum) as well as all insurances that have out-of-network benefits.

We accept all GIC plans as out of network providers.

We are accepting all HMO Tufts plans but no Tufts plans that are Commonwealth Care plans such as "Tufts Health Direct"  

We do not accept any of the following plans: Mass Health, any Health Connector or Commonwealth Care Plans, Health New England HMO, MediCare, Cigna HMO, Beacon HMO, Aetna HMO. 

We are aware that insurance coverage is incredibly confusing; please email us if you are not sure if we accept your insurance, and include a picture of your insurance card.

A note about out of network plans: 

We accept all insurance plans with out of network mental health benefits. Clients must call directly to their insurance companies to find out the following information: Do I have out of network mental health benefits? If so, do I have a deductible and what is it? What is the co-insurance or percentage of  payment I am responsible for? Please note that because we are not networked with out of network plans, we are not contracted to accept their rates. Your clinician will charge you based on our published rates, meaning you will owe the difference between what your insurance pays, and our published rates.
