Referrals and Specialists

Although your insurance may not require one, most Penn State Health Specialties require a referral from a provider.

Students have access to the Penn State Health Concierge Service, 833-PSH-TEAM (774-8326). Concierge specialists will connect students with a Penn State Health Coordinator, who will help schedule appointments with specialists or diagnostic services and obtain authorizations.

If you are a subscriber, the primary care providers at COMMpanion can provide specialty referrals as well as rapid electronic consultation for select Penn State Health specialists.


Aside from unlimited primary care appointments through COMMpanion, which are no-cost beyond the monthly subscription, the student’s insurance will be billed for the cost of all appointments. Visit expenses are the responsibility of the student and their insurance carrier. If you wish to obtain an estimate of costs performed through Penn State Health, call 888-835-5850; please have your insurance information, CPT and diagnostic codes ready.
