Most visits to Student Health Services (SHS) are free.  There is a cost associated with vaccinations, some supplies (crutches, air casts), 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.  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 provides same-day delivery to SHS at the end of the day AS A COURTESY. 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. 

The TCNJ student health insurance plan has agreed to cover 100% of SHS charges listed below for students who are enrolled in the student health insurance plan.  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. A list of Student Health Services’ charges are listed below. Please note that the student health insurance plan does NOT pay the entire cost of your prescription medicine.  For a list of how much you will pay out-of-pocket for your prescription medicine, click HERE to find a medication and log in to see drug costs.

We have no agreement with any other insurance company.  Students who have insurance other than student health insurance, or no insurance, are expected to pay for any chargeable services received at the time of their Student Health Services’ office visit. We accept cash, TCNJ GetIt Card, MasterCard, Visa and Discover cards.  We cannot accept personal checks or other cards.
