Your medical insurance can be billed by LabCorp for any labs done in the SHC.

Can I come to the health center if I don't have any insurance or a plan other than the student health insurance?
Definitely! The Student Health Center is accessible to all students. The only exception is a benefits eligible employee who is also taking classes, they are unable to to be seen at the SHC.
I heard that everything at the health center is free for students. Is this really true?
There is a $5.00 visit fee for students to see a Nurse Practitioner 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 visit fee, there may charges for tests, immunizations (including flu shots) and special surgical procedures. We 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, debit or credit card. Students must pay for services and tests at the time of their visit. Students may pay in person or can give there credit number over the phone. We are not able to accept the Campus card.
I have student health insurance. Doesn't this cover all of the charges at the health center?
Even students with the Student Health Insurance Plan are responsible for the $5 visit fee. Other fees charged at the SHC will be billed to the student insurance.
