At Mary’s Center, your health is our priority. Understanding your health insurance options can be tough and we are here to help. We accept most insurance plans, but are deeply committed to providing you with health care regardless of your ability to pay.  

Are you covered?

It’s important to look into your insurance coverage before making an appointment with Mary’s Center to avoid paying unnecessary fees.  Check the insurance plans we accept.


If you DO NOT have insurance, here’s what to do: 

  1. Meet with us before you make your first doctor’s appointment at Mary’s Center. During the meeting, we will help you find out if you are eligible to sign up for a health plan or public benefit. 
  2. Once we determine you are eligible for a health plan or public benefit, we will help you with the sign-up process so you can see one of our medical providers as soon as possible.
