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 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 begining of the fall and spring semesters, and the policy's coverage is for twelve months (on and off campus). More information will be available here on July 1st 2014.
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.
