Insurance Coverage & Assistance

Ochs Insuranceinfographic

For the clearest and, most definitive answers to your healthcare pricing questions, contact your individual health insurance provider. Your insurer will be your best source of information based on your coverage, deductible and other personal information.

Outer Cape Health Services accepts MassHealth (Medicaid), Health Safety Net, and most commercial insurance plans. Please check with your insurance provider to make sure an Outer Cape Health Services community health center and provider is in-network for your specific plan. Out-of-Network health coverage can often result in higher costs to the patient.  Visitors seeking walk-in service at our health centers, or urgent care in Provincetown, should seek preauthorization from their insurance providers to avoid a potential out-of-pocket expense for visits.

Outer Cape Health Services also offers help applying for health insurance and a  Sliding Fee Discount Program for services. Discounts are available based on family size and income.
