Insurance information

Understanding your insurance coverage can sometimes be a difficult process. Be sure to ask your individual insurance provider which procedures to treat microtia are and are not covered by your plan. It also will be beneficial for you to ask what referrals you might need.

If you have further questions, contact your insurance provider for assistance. Most providers list a customer service phone number on the back of the insurance card.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
