Health Service Fees


2021-2022 Student Health Access Fee:
$167.50 per semester

Many services offered at the Student Health Service are pre-paid by the student health fee including your clinician visits. Students are responsible for their own bills if referred to Watauga Medical Center, an outside physician, or pharmacy.

Student Health Access Fee Coverage

There is no charge for seeing a clinician (Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, or Physicians Assistant) during Regular Clinic or After-Hours Clinic.  There is no charge for MOST lab work done in the Student Health Service (SHS) Lab, if a SHS clinician deems it clinically necessary. Prices vary for any lab work ordered by an "outside" clinician.

Additional Charges

Payment options for any additional charges include Cash, Check, Express Account, Credit Card, Debit Card, or adding the charge to a students tuition account with a valid Student ID. If we are in network with your current insurance provider, charges (excluding pharmacy) can be courtesy filed to your insurance. This is a very small sample of some common items that have additional charges.
