Billing & Insurance
The health care billing process is very confusing for all of us, so it is important that you become familiar with your health plan’s summary of benefits so you know your financial responsibilities.
Pentucket Medical’s payment policy is that:
- Co-pays and deductibles are paid at the time of your visit.
- Other charges will be billed to your insurance plan or government program.
- Unpaid balances are due from you immediately after receiving your statement.
- If you have questions about a billing issue, please call 1-617-726-3884 and a business office representative will be happy to assist you.
We participate with most state and national insurance plans. However, it is your responsibility to understand whether your insurance has limits on the doctors you can see, or the services you can receive.
If you provide complete and accurate information about your insurance, we will submit claims to your insurance carrier and receive payments for services. Depending on your insurance coverage, you may be responsible for co-payments, co-insurance or other deductible amounts.

Important Medicaid redetermination update
Medicaid (MassHealth in Massachusetts) has maintained members’ coverage and benefits due to continuous coverage requirements that started during the COVID-19 emergency. Starting April 1, Medicaid will return to its normal annual renewal process. If Medicaid has enough information to confirm your eligibility, your coverage will be renewed automatically. If Medicaid is not able to confirm your eligibility automatically, you will receive a renewal form in a blue envelope to the mailing address that is on file.
To avoid disruption in coverage, please visit your state’s website to ensure Medicaid has your most current information.
