Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to be seen at  Health Service?

  • All full time students are eligible for treatment at the Health Service Office. 

Do I have to be enrolled in the insurance plan that the University offers to be seen at Health Service?

  • No. Full time students may be seen at the Health Service, regardless of
    the insurance plan they carry.  

What type of services will I be charged for?

  • A nominal fee will be charged for some services provided by Health Service. These charges  may be paid at the Cashier's Office at the time of service or will be added to your tuition bill as a General Health Service fee. Fees for services outside of the Health Service such as those for prescription medications, x-rays, referrals to specialists, emergency room care,
    ambulance and hospitalization, are the responsibility of the student.

How do I pay for these charges?

  •  It is mandatory that all full time students be covered by either their own 
    health insurance or by the plan provided through the University. These   charges are then covered by your insurance plan according to their payment schedule. The student is responsible for filing any claims forms.

Do I need an appointment to see the physician, nurse practitioner
or nurse?

  • Yes, please schedule an appointment for all non-emergent or non -urgent
    conditions. Emergencies and urgent conditions receive priority. We will
    do our best to see scheduled appointments on time.

More information on the Aetna Student Health Plan  may be obtained at Health Service  or at the following link, Aetna Student Health

If I am ill when Health Service is closed, where should I go?

If I get injured, am I covered under the Student Accident Plan?

  • Yes. All full time students are covered under the Student Accident Plan. If  
    you carry your own sickness plan, this insurance will pay accident costs that are not covered by your policy.

Can part time students participate in the Aetna Student Health  Plan?

  • Yes, part time students may purchase insurance for themselves and their dependents, but they must be matriculated and enrolled in a degree program. Information may be obtained from the Cashier's Office or 
    at Aetna Student Health.
