Lehigh Valley Children's Hospital

At Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), we care for all people regardless of ability to pay. We never want you to ignore your health care needs because you can’t afford to pay medical expenses. Get the care you need first. Then, if you do not have health insurance or if your insurance plan only partially covers your medical expenses, we’ll continue to help you.

Options if you are uninsured or underinsured

Visit Healthcare.gov, a website operated by the federal government that allows you to shop for health insurance.

Complete LVHN’s financial assistance program application. It’s also available in Spanish. If you qualify, the amount your bill will be reduced depends on where you fall within the following scale.
