Are There Any Fees or Expenses?
The majority of services available at the Health and Wellness Center are covered by the mandatory health fee paid at the beginning of each semester. These services include exams, women's and men's health care, a limited number of prescription and over the counter medications, on site laboratory tests, on site treatments, flu vaccines, etc. There are nominal charges for certain immunizations, prescription medications, some STD laboratory tests/screens, birth control pills, and emergency contraceptives.
Students will be required to use their own health insurance to pay for emergency room visits, services of off-campus health care providers, off-campus laboratory and X-rays when ordered, and services, supplies, and medications obtained off campus. Laboratory tests ordered and sent to our contracted laboratory are also paid for with the student's private medical insurance or can be billed directly to the student by the lab.
Do I need Student Health Insurance?
It is now required for all students to carry health insurance If students do not have private health care coverage, a policy is available through the college for a charge. Students can enroll and un-enroll at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, and the policy's coverage is for twelve months (on and off campus). View information about the student health insurance.
If the student has medical insurance, a waiver should be submitted to Student Accounts at the time of registration. This waiver certifies that the student does have other health insurance.
What is the Student Health Insurance fee?
All matriculated undergraduate students are billed for the college’s health insurance plan (this is different than the health fee) on their initial semester bill each academic year. Any student who has other health insurance may opt out and have the charge removed. This insurance plan provides medical coverage or supplements private insurance. It is not required in order to use the student health center. Contact the student health center for further question or concerns or call the account manager at Haylor, Freyer & Coon Account Manager 315-453-2164.
