Quest will bill your insurance directly.

  • What if I don't have insurance?
    You can be seen at Campus Health Center even if you do not have insurance.
    Your first two visits each fall and winter semester are considered Warrior Visits, which means there is no out-of-pocket expense and you will not receive a bill for the provider time from Campus Health Center. There may be costs associated with tests, labs, and procedures that you will be responsible for paying. Let our team know you do not have insurance so they can provide options prior to recieving care.
    If you see us more than twice per fall and winter semester, or you come during the spring or summer, you may want to apply for our sliding fee discout program.
    The Campus Health Center sliding fee discount program is ONLY applicable to the office visit (time spent with the provider). Please inquire at our front desk, for more information and/or the sliding fee scale application.
