The Center offers both prescription and non-prescription medication. These medications are available at a discounted price; many times the price is equivalent or less than a co-pay at the pharmacy.
Remember your visit to the Health & Wellness Center is free, but there may be a fee for testing, immunizations, and medications. The Health & Wellness Center will provide the student with a bill for services rendered at our facility. The student is responsible for payment at the time of service and may pay with cash or check, or the student may opt to bill their student account. If the student bills their student account, the Health & Wellness Center will provide the Student Billing Office with the students name and student ID number, the date of service, and the amount of the bill. No medical information will be shared with the billing office.
Also, the student is financially responsible for any services provided outside of our office and/or any lab work that we have to send to an outside laboratory.
