For Patients & Visitors

Financial Information

You may receive several bills for your health care services – one for hospital care and separate itemized bills for the services of your physician, anesthesiologists, radiologists, or other specialists. For more information, call our Billing Department at 617-696-9300.

If you are uninsured, you may be asked to make a deposit when you arrive at the Patient Registration Department, and then visit the cashier’s office on the first floor to resolve any remaining financial obligations upon discharge. Depending on your financial situation, BID-Milton can help you apply for insurance benefits through available state insurance plans that will pay for health care for people who meet state income guidelines.
