Payment & Insurance
Navigating the paperwork and procedures that are part of the healthcare system can be intimidating to students who are away from their parents for the first time, but the Business Office at Mount Nittany Medical Center makes the process as simple and stress-free as possible.
Students who require care at Mount Nittany Medical Center are advised to bring identification and a health insurance card with them when admitted. If unsure of the co-pay a visit will require, consult the documentation provided by your insurance company.
No payment will be required before receiving care in the Emergency Department at Mount Nittany Medical Center, and health insurance is not a requirement to be treated. If your visit requires a co-pay, the Business Office prefers it be paid upon discharge. Should this not be possible, the co-pay will be added to your bill.
You will receive, by mail, a copy of your itemized bill for hospital charges; this will also be sent to your insurance company. If a patient charge is shown, you are requested to pay that amount within 30 days. In addition, you may be required to pay any balance that is not covered by your insurance.
The Medical Center accepts Visa, Discover and MasterCard payments by phone or through our website. If you have any questions, please call the Business Office at 814.234.6171 or toll-free at 866.686.6171 during their normal hours of Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please let us know if your address, employment, insurance and/or dependent status has changed.
