At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Philadelphia there are no barriers to care. Doctors determine the course of care and all care is provided regardless of the families' ability to pay.
If the child is covered by private insurance or a state funding plan, the hospital will bill and accept reimbursement for services provided at our hospital. However, insurance coverage is not needed for care. Any child under 18 with a medical condition that is within the hospital’s scope of services is eligible for care.
For insurance related questions, please call 215-430-4050.
Please have all insurance information such as primary, secondary or tertiary insurance coverage readily available at the time of scheduling an appointment and upon arrival of your confirmed appointment. However, lack of insurance coverage does not determine if care will be provided.
