Understanding your coverage

If your child is being admitted to Boston Children's Hospital and you are not sure of your health insurance benefits, please call the number on the back of your insurance card, and they will give you the details of your plan.

Adding a new child to your insurance

If you are the insurance guarantor (the person financially responsible) for a newborn, you must add your new child's name to your insurance within 30 days of birth.

Elective Procedures

All patients electively scheduled will be referred to the Patient Access Center (PAC) for insurance authorization. If we are unable to obtain insurance authorization, your elective admission may be postponed.

Long-term hospitalizations

If your child is in the hospital for more than a calendar month, your child may be entitled to SSI (Supplemental Security Income) Disability. Speak to your social worker for additional insurance opportunities.

International patients

If you are from another country other than the United States, please call Boston Children's International Resources or email international.center@childrens.harvard.edu to schedule all inpatient and outpatient appointments.


You will receive a bill from your GI physician the day of your child's appointment. If your child sees a clinical dietition and a physician on the same day, you will receive two separate bills, one from GI and one from Nutrition, on the same day.

If your child is seen by a physician from a department other than GI/Nutrition, on the same date, you will receive a bill for those services as well.
