Health Services does not have any contracts for direct payment with any health insurance companies for clinic or ancillary services and it does not direct bill insurance companies. We regret any inconvenience this policy may cause for students and parents. However, because we treat students from all over the United States and the world, there would need to be contracts with hundreds of insurance companies.
Therefore, you are responsible for paying all bills you incur for clinic visits, medication and certain procedures.
Health insurance is strongly recommended for all students. The student should be aware of the coverage and limitations of their individual policies. Each year Penn State selects a student insurance plan and makes it available to students who either have no insurance coverage or who need supplemental insurance. You can receive more information on this insurance by calling the insurance office at University Park at 814-865-7467 or by visiting Student Health Insurance website.
