Insurance and Billing

The student health fee, included in your tuition, covers the majority of services provided by the Student Health Center therefore, there is no office visit/co-pay to be seen. There are however, minimal fees for some in house procedures/tests [PDF].  **Insurance cannot be used for the services listed on this price list once processed**

Student health offers student pricing for outside labs [PDF] as well. For outside labs, students may use their insurance card or pay the student price out of pocket.  Should you wish to use your insurance card instead of paying the student cash price, Student Health will send a copy of your insurance card to the lab company for processing.  **You are responsible for any bill you recieve from Quest Diagnostics (lab company). If you have questions regarding your bill please call the phone number listed on your bill or visit the Quest Diagnostics website. **

Please come to your appointment prepared to pay for the services rendered.  Student Health accepts RU Express, cash, check and all major credit cards.

A Note About the Student Health Center and Private Medical Insurance

Student Health Center does not accept insurance nor do we directly bill insurance companies. Reimbursement from your insurance company is entirely your responsibility. If you are filing a claim for reimbursement and need an itemized statement, please stop by the student health office and have your University ID card with you.
