Student Accounts & Billing

About Student Accounts & Billing

The patient is responsible for payment of medical charges regardless of health insurance filing status. Payment is due on the day of service for any charges incurred by a student. We accept cash, check, the student’s MasterCard / Visa, or students may bill the charges to their student Genie account. Student Health Services are in network with Student Blue insurance and will file claims on behalf of the patient. Students with Student Blue insurance will have any charges unpaid or denied by the insurance plan charged to their student Genie account through the cashier’s office, after the claim has been processed. Outstanding medical charges may interfere with your graduation status, successful registration for subsequent semesters, or requests for transcripts. Please pay your bill at the cashier’s office in a timely manner.

It is important to CHECK OUT at the end of your medical clinic appointment or pharmacy encounter to see if there are any charges incurred for the visit. A walkout statement for the date of service is available at check out  for the patient to use for insurance filing, personal record, or excused absence purposes. If the patient does not check out any charges incurred will be billed to their student Genie account. If you need additional copies of your medical charges, please follow the guidelines below.
