Payment

Student Health Center

SHC charges for all services provided at the clinic. Your health insurance provider is billed first, but the student and/or parents are responsible for any charges not covered by insurance.

Most insurance requires a small copayment be paid at each visit. Students can make any payments by cash, check, credit card or GoCard. Every effort will be made to assist where financial hardship exists.

Students and parents should make the determination about whether their existing health insurance provides adequate coverage to pay for primary care services at the Student Health Center or in the Washington, DC area. The University in conjunction with the Hospital has arranged for an insurance plan which along with Emergency and catastrophic care provides primary care coverage in Washington, DC as well as throughout the country through the United Health PPO network. For more information about the University sponsored plan, visit the Student Health Insurance website and Information on Navigating the Health System.
