Essential community providers

Essential community providers are providers who serve low-income, medically underserved individuals—people who may not have easy access to health care services. Some examples of essential community providers are federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), urban Indian organizations, and public or non-profit community hospitals and health centers.

The list below shows essential community providers in Massachusetts. Before receiving care at one of the facilities below, you should call to check that the provider you will be seeing is contracted with your specific health plan.
