Fees, Insurance, Payment
New Health Insurance Requirements for Domestic Graduate & Professional Students Starting Fall 2013
Admitted students are automatically assessed a health fee each semester. This fee covers office visits, access to health information, counseling and psychological services, and a variety of preventive care services (e.g., flu vaccines, certain wellness screenings, etc.). There may be a small fee for psychological testing, which is due at the time of service. Services such as lab work, supplies, and pharmaceuticals are also offered at a low cost, and you can choose to bill to your insurance.
Student Health Insurance
The Student Health Insurance Plan is available to admitted and currently enrolled students taking three or more graduate credit hours. The Student Health Insurance provides coverage for necessary medical and mental health services beyond those available through Student Wellness. Be sure to pick up a Student Health Insurance brochure at the Student Wellness Center and check out our frequently asked questions about this insurance.
Payment is due at the time of service. In general, the Student Wellness Center does not bill private insurance. However, students with private insurance may be eligible to have their lab charges billed to their insurance through Quest Diagnostics. Also, the Student Wellness Center will bill the Student Health Insurance Plan for pharmacy charges and high cost laboratory and medical procedures. Students paying their charges can do so by cash, check or credit/debit card. Students using a flexible benefits card may use this card for payment.
Any charges not paid at the time of service will be billed to the student within 2 weeks after services are received. The Student Wellness Center will place a transcript and registration hold on a student’s University account if there is a balance due to Student Wellness. Any balances that remain unpaid will be referred to a collection agency.
Questions regarding billing and payment for services should be directed to the Student Wellness billing office at: 702-895-0686.
