In-State Referrals

The Trauma Center provides outpatient mental health services only through self-pay, Victim's Compensation Fund (visit for details), and MassHealth administered through the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership (MBHP), Beacon, and Tufts Together. Clients with out-of-network private insurance benefits may be eligible to seek reimbursement from their insurance company; clients would need to speak with their insurance company to see if they are eligible, self-pay at the Trauma Center and submit to their insurance company on their own. We are unable to accept any other insurance plans. For help finding a trauma-informed clinician outside of the Trauma Center, please visit the resources below.
