Frequent Q's and A's about Payment Policies
I heard that everything at the health center is free for students. Is this really true?
There is a $5.00 administrative fee for students to see a medical provider for consultation and treatment at the Seattle University Student Health Center. At most other medical clinics there is a flat office visit charge of around $100.00 that does not include medications, lab charges and exam charges.
What do I have to pay for?
Aside from the $5.00 administrative fee per visit, there may charges for laboratory tests, immunizations (including flu shots) and special surgical procedures based on your insurance. We are non-profit and try to keep our prices as low as possible so that all students can benefit from using the Health Center.
How can I pay?
Cash, check, or credit card (only Visa and Mastercard). Students must pay for services and laboratory tests at the time of their visit. Students with school insurance can have their labs, office procedures and immunizations billed, students with private insurance can have their labs billed directly from LabCorp. We are not able to accept the Campus card.
I have student insurance. Doesn't this cover all of the charges?
Perhaps. There have been many changes in health care over the past few years and more to come. It is always best to read your policy thoroughly.
