3/30/23 PPA MASK POLICY: Our masking policy now requires only those patients, parents, siblings, or anyone else accompanying a patient who has respiratory illness or has had recent covid exposure to wear masks. Other sick patients, parents, and anyone who is not sick with a respiratory virus and who has not had recent Covid exposure, seen on either the well or sick side, do not have to mask. PPA reserves the right to change or modify this policy according to the community spread of Covid 19 or as recommended by the CDC or the PA Department of Health. We appreciate your respectful cooperation with our Mask Policy.

1/1/2021 The CARES Act requires that providers post their cash price for COVID-19 testing. PPA'S cash price for rapid COVID-19 testing is $60 which must be paid at the time of service. Please note, this is only for the COVID-19 rapid test. Other tests and screenings may be ordered and provided at the same time of service, which will affect the total bill for this service and may require payment of other out-of-pocket costs (for example, office visit copays). PCR Covid-19 testing, when determined as required by the clinician, will be sent out to commercial labs and billed to insurance.
