Fees and Billing

Fee-for-service Clinic

Services are provided to the general public at competitive rates. Discounted rates are available to Penn State students.

The client is responsible for payment to the clinic for services rendered. The client can then submit the clinic invoice to their insurance company or payor source for personal reimbursement.

Discount Program

A sliding scale discount is available based upon household size and income. Eligibility criteria for this program were developed from the Federal Poverty Guidelines, based on family size and income.

To be considered for this program, you must submit:

  • a completed application
  • acceptable proof of income for all adults in the household

If you do not wish to submit an application or you do not qualify based on the proof of income received, you will be responsible for the full charges. If you have any questions or concerns about the clinic sliding fee scale, please contact the clinic at 814-865-5414.
