Advocacy for Access at BMC

The goal of Advocacy for Access is to aid the uninsured and underinsured in Southern and Central Berkshire County in accessing various programs that can pay for healthcare services, thereby reducing or eliminating inability to pay as a barrier to receiving healthcare. There are several low-cost health insurance programs for adults and children who live in Massachusetts. In addition, there are new options under the federal health reform law. Our staff can help you to navigate the many choices that are available to you. 

Advocacy for Access at BMC has appointments available for those who need help enrolling in health insurance plans that are available under the Affordable Care Act and Massachusetts Connector. Due to the complexity of the application process, walk-ins cannot be accommodated, but appointments can be scheduled for weekdays between 8 am and 3 pm. To schedule an appointment, please call 413-445-9480.

Advocacy for Access at BMC is located at 510 North Street in Pittsfield, Suite 8 (Side of building that faces A-Mart). You can reach us by calling 413-445-9480.
