INFIRMARY CHARGE

Students will not incur out-of-pocket costs for seeing the nurse or the medical representative at Student Health Services. However, there are certain items or services that may incur a cost. Any additional fee will be placed on the Student’s account as an “infirmary charge.” These charges will vary. 

In special circumstances, our office will purchase equipment for a Student that we do not normally have in-stock. In these circumstances, the full retail amount is put on the account of the Student that needed the equipment.

Current complete list of items and services that incur a cost within the Health Services office (Updated Spring 2019):

  • During Clinic Hours, Physician’s may prescribe a Student a prescription drug that the office has inventory of.

Check with Health Services to find out the price per tablet/capsule of the prescription drug; it could make more economical sense to get it from a pharmacy.
