If you do not have insurance:

We can help you apply for health care coverage. There are programs based on your income, family size, residency and other guidelines. We have reduced fees for those with no insurance coverage.

If you have Commercial Insurance or MassHealth:

If you have a managed health care plan and have chosen someone else as your primary care provider, you will need to call the phone number on your insurance card to change your primary care provider to a Manet physician or provide a referral for the services you receive at Manet.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance, who have out of network insurances and patients who choose not to use their insurance an estimate of the bill for medical services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items of primary services. The GFE is not required to account for unanticipated care that is not reasonably expected or results from unforeseen events.
  • You can request a Good Faith Estimate for medical services you receive.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or photo of your Good Faith Estimate.

You are entitled to apply with our navigation team for federal financial assistance (sliding fee program). How much you pay will depend on your income and the number of people in your household.
