Most visits to Student Health Services (SHS) are free. There is a cost associated with vaccinations, some supplies (crutches, air casts), emergency contraception, office rapid lab tests & TB skin tests. When laboratory testing is ordered by a SHS doctor or nurse practitioner, you have the option of having your blood drawn in the office, and sent to either Quest Diagnostics or Lab Corp depending on which of these laboratories is in your insurance network. The laboratory will send the bill to your home address. You can then provide the laboratory with the details of your insurance billing information. We are not responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses that you incur due to non-coverage or co-insurance expenses (deductibles, co-pays, etc). We can order prescription medicine for you electronically to the pharmacy of your choice, or to Quick Chek Pharmacy on Pennington Road who provide same-day delivery to SHS at the end of the day. Please make sure that you bring your prescription card with you so that we can fax the front & back of your prescription card to the Pharmacy. You can then pick your prescription up from SHS or the pharmacy. Be prepared to pay for the portion of the cost of prescription NOT paid by insurance. If picking up your prescription in SHS, please note that we can ONLY accept major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover) on behalf of Quick Chek Pharmacy for your prescription. We cannot accept CASH, personal checks or Flex Spending cards on behalf of the pharmacy.

Our office will submit the bill for you to the student health insurance company. This agreement does NOT extend to outside facilities such as a laboratory or pharmacy.
