Health Center Fees
There is no charge to be seen in the Health Center. There are however some charges generated for certain medications and laboratory tests, just as in any medical facility. Costs for medication and laboratory services may be paid in cash, charged to parents, charge to VISA or Master Card, or the student may use their declining balance account. You will find a schedule of fees below. A receipt is available upon request so these charges may be submitted to your insurance carrier. Costs for medical care provided by the Emergency Department, or specialists in the community, are the students' responsibility.  If a medication is needed that is not stocked in the Health Center, a prescription will be written. Your prescripton can be filled at any of the local pharmacies. Link here for the name, address and phone numbers of the local pharmacies.

If you belong to a Managed Care network such as a Health Maintenence Organization (HMO), you must notify them of the visit and charges by phone within a certain time (usually 24 hours) in order to be reimbursed for the expense. Each insurance carrier is different, so you should familiarize yourself with your companies' guidelines for notification and reimbursement.
