When You Can Expect To Pay

Your health insurance plan may require that you pay a deductible or co-payment for each hospital admission or service. We usually ask for this payment at the time of service or discharge from the hospital.

We recommend you contact your insurance company to learn about your payment responsibilities. Call the phone number listed on your health insurance card.

At Mount Auburn Hospital we offer payment plans and other medical financial aid if you can’t pay a copayment or the full bill right away. If you need to explore payment options, call one of our financial counselors at 617-655-6849.

Surprise/Balance Billing Protection

When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital, you are protected from balance billing (also called surprise billing). In these cases, you shouldn't be charged more than your plan's copayment, coinsurance and/or deductible amounts.

You have rights and protection against surprise medical bills. To learn more, read our Balance/Surprise Billing Protection Notice

Request a Good Faith Estimate

Mount Auburn Hospital is committed to price transparency as part of our mission to provide high-quality, affordable care while complying with federal laws requiring clear and helpful price information be made available to the public.

In some cases, you can ask for a cost estimate of your healthcare services in advance. This gives you an idea of the cost of your bill. The estimate might include hospital fees, medication costs and medical tests. For more details, refer to the Right To Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges Notice.
