Due to the various types of insurance plans and companies our students have, the SHC does not submit claims to any insurance company except the student health insurance plan through Aetna Student Health.
Your medical insurance can be billed by LabCorp for any labs done in the SHC.

I heard that everything at the health center is free for students. Is this really true?
There is a $5.00 flat 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 flat 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 insurance. Doesn't this cover all of the charges?
Even students with the Student Health Insurance Plan are responsible for the $5 administrative visit fee. Other fees charged at the SHC will be billed to the student insurance.
