Health Insurance Accepted

Health Insurance Accepted

We accept a variety of health insurance plans and will submit claims on your behalf. See if your plan is accepted at Penn State Children’s Hospital.

If you do not have insurance coverage or are in need of assistance with balances remaining after insurance processing, our financial counselors can assist in determining whether you qualify for a special program, payment plan, or charity.

Insurances Accepted

Understand your coverage

Before your appointment, please review your insurance benefits or contact your insurance provider to determine what your policy will cover and identify any out-of-pocket expenses.

While our customer service representatives are always happy to help you better understand your coverage, we’ve put together a few resources and reminders to guide you: 

  • Health insurance glossary - see a list of common insurance terms to ensure that you understand exactly what your insurance covers.
  • Experimental procedures - some of our cutting-edge treatments are considered experimental by health insurance companies and because of this are not covered. We’ll work with you to identify any procedure that might be considered experimental, so you can speak with your health insurance company before beginning those procedures.

If your plan isn’t accepted

We never turn patients away for lack of insurance. We work with you to determine if you qualify for financial assistance or other payment plans.

Please contact us at 800-254-2619 or 717-531-5069 if your insurance isn’t included in this list.
