Due to the various types of insurance plans and companies that our students carry Health & Counseling Services does not submit claims to insurance companies.
Health Visit Charges
Students will be responsible for the minimal charges that are incurred during their medical visit i.e. provider visit fee, immunizations, in-office laboratory testing, supplies, etc. Students will be given an itemized receipt that includes the proper medical codes for utilization in self submission to their insurance company.
Counseling Visit Charges
There is no fee for the individual counseling services (with the exception of psychiatric services). If students are in need of specialized services and are referred by a counselor to off-campus professionals, the cost of these services are the responsibility of the student.
Charges for Diagnostic Tests
Health & Counseling Services providers may order imaging or laboratory testing from health facilities that are located outside of Health & Counseling Services. The fees for these tests are not included in the Health & Counseling Services visit fee. The student will be responsible for the fees that are incurred outside of Health & Counseling Services. The student may provide the outside health facility with their insurance information and request to be billed separately by the providing health facility.
All students should be covered with adequate health and accident insurance to avoid the unexpected interruption of their education by high medical expenses.
Forms of Payment Accepted
Health & Counseling Services accepts the following types of payment for the services rendered: check, credit/debit (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express), Bulldog Bucks or students are allowed to charge their services to their student account. If the student account option is chosen the fees will be included on the students' tuition bill as a "Student Health Fee."
