Serving the Germantown and the northwest areas of Philadelphia since 1964, Covenant House's two locations are federally qualified health centers and thus receive federal funding to directly subsidize their costs. No one is ever turned away, regardless of their ability to pay, but patients need to make an appointment first and provide insurance and income information. Delivering attentive, comprehensive primary care is the group's hallmark, serving the needs of young and old alike with everything from pediatric and geriatric medicine to prenatal care and behavioral health. Preventative care is assured as well and includes school-related vaccinations, flu shots and periodic check-ups.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Covenant House Health Services website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
