Financial Assistance

We know your first concern is to be healthy and happy, so we offer financial assistance to help you overcome potential obstacles that medical bills may present to getting the care you need.

In compliance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations – IRS Code 501(r) – Penn State Health hospitals and medical practices:

  • Have a written financial assistance policy and “plain language summary” of the policy available to the public
  • Limit the amounts that can be charged for emergency or other medically necessary care to individuals eligible for financial assistance, charging only “Amounts Generally Billed” for such care
  • Refrain from extraordinary collection actions before making reasonable efforts to determine whether an individual qualifies for financial assistance
