Financial Policy for HLA

Payment for outpatient services is due at the time they are provided. When an animal is admitted to the hospital for inpatient services, the client will be asked to leave a deposit of 75 percent of the estimated cost of the bill. In the event that the initial estimate changes over the course of the patient’s stay, the client may also be asked to make an additional deposit toward the final bill.

The Hospital for Large Animals at Cummings Veterinary Medical Center at Tufts accepts cash, personal check, MasterCard, Discover and Visa. If necessary, please contact the accounting office at 508-839-7937 prior to discharge to work out a payment plan. Clients may be able to set up a payment plan through CareCredit, a firm specializing in medical care payment plans.
