Insurances Accepted, Billing and Payment Information

Insurances Accepted

Brigham and Women's Hospital accepts most health insurance plans. Partners HealthCare maintains information about health insurance accepted at BWH and other hospitals within the Partners HealthCare System. Please visit their website for further information on insurance plans and products accepted at BWH.

Many insurance plans are now considered “tiered” plans, and have different levels of costs depending on where you go for care. It is important that you check with your own health insurance plan to see what level of coverage you will receive at a specific hospital. Even if you see your insurance plan listed, additional referrals or authorizations may be required.  Some services may not be covered by your insurance coverage at every location. The level of coverage provided to you is determined by your insurer.

Also, many health insurance plans may use other companies to cover certain services such as behavioral health (mental health) or transplant related services. Please contact your health insurance plan or employer for your specific questions.

You should always check with your own health insurance plan before getting care to make sure you understand your covered benefits and costs.
