Insurance and Fees
We strive to make our services affordable for students. If you have paid your student health fee, there is no charge for your primary care office visit; however, there may be charges for additional services such as medications, labs, X-ray, and specialists. For questions regarding the costs of specific services, contact the Student Health Center. We recommend that all students check to see that they are currently covered and have supplemental medical insurance. The University sponsors a student insurance plan for graduate, medical and international students only. The Student Health Center will submit bills for the University-sponsored insurance plan but is unable to bill outside insurance. The Student Health Center is not a Medicaid/Medicare provider.
We take great pride in serving our students with the highest quality care possible! By providing excellent care we hope to enhance your campus experience.
What is Student Health Insurance?

Dependents are not eligible for care at the Student Health Center.
What are the benefits?

If you have additional insurance questions, please contact the Student Health Center at (775) 784-6598.
What is the Student Health Fee?
The Student Health Fee is not an insurance policy. Paying the health fee entitles you to use of the Student Health Center, unlimited primary care office visits and certain laboratory tests. However, procedures, X-rays, and referrals to specialists result in an additional cost. If you are enrolled in 6 or more credits, you have automatically been assessed the Student Health Fee. If you are enrolled in less than 6 credits, you need to pay the health fee prior to being seen.
