Health Center

When a student is seen in the Health Center, there is no cost for the nurse visit. There may be charges for medications, immunizations and treatment supplies. These charges are due at time of service. The student can request receipts for medications or immunizations. The student is then responsible for submitting the request to their private medical insurance. Check with your insurance carrier regarding submission of these claims. The Health Center does not bill private insurance companies.
