Affordable Healthcare

Great medical care should be available to everyone, regardless of where they live, their insurance, or their ability to pay. At Laurel Health, we work hard to make healthcare as affordable as possible to patients of all ages and backgrounds.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, and most major insurances like Highmark, Blue Cross, Geisinger, UPMC, AmeriHealth, Humana, and United Healthcare. Laurel Health also provides several community outreach programs and discounted services to ensure everyone can access the high-quality medical services they deserve:

  • Pharmacy discount program: Qualifying patients can use their pharmacy discount card at participating pharmacies to purchase prescribed medications at a discounted rate. 
  • Free Enrollment Assistance: Our certified application counselors help community members enroll in healthcare coverage and apply for financial assistance programs, including Pennsylvania Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Programs (CHIP), Laurel Health's sliding fee program, and the pharmacy discount program.
  • Community outreach: We connect with people of all ages at local events to provide free health and wellness screenings, healthcare education, resources, supplies, and support.

Care Coordination

We want to be your healthcare advocate. Our care coordination team helps ensure a smooth, cohesive treatment experience every step of the way. If you require a specialty service, we can assist you with scheduling between offices and keep every member of your healthcare team on the same page. We can also help you with coordinating transportation to appointments and connecting you with community resources to support your overall well-being.

A History of the Laurel Health Centers

The Laurel Health Centers can trace their roots back to the Blossburg State General Hospital, which began serving patients in 1891. When the Blossburg hospital closed its doors in 1972, residents were determined to preserve local access to care and founded North Penn Comprehensive Health Services (NPCHS). North Penn opened its first family health center in 1973 on the former hospital site and expanded to include behavioral health and substance abuse treatment services the following year.

Over the next two decades, North Penn opened primary care clinics in Mansfield, Wellsboro, Westfield, Elkland, and Lawrenceville. In 1988, North Penn entered into partnership with Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital to form Laurel Health System, rebranding its clinics to the Laurel Health Centers and Laurel Behavioral Health. 

In 2012, the other parts of Laurel Health System merged with a Williamsport-based health system. The Laurel Health Centers separated and returned to being a fully independent organization, retaining our Laurel Health name.
