Southwestern University Health Services
Now Bills Health Insurance Plans
In order to maintain service levels during a time of rising healthcare costs and increased demand for services, we have decided to begin billing all health insurance plans for services provided by our professional clinical staff. This action should facilitate a continuation of maintaining quality health care services without putting the financial burden on you or your son or daughter.
* As is true in other health care settings, there is a charge for office visits. SU Health Services will bill your PRIMARY health insurance directly for services that are covered by your plan. We will NOT bill you or your student for these services, only the insurance company. The SU Health Benefits Plan which is included in your tuition provides SECONDARY/Supplemental Health Benefits for charges not covered by your PRIMARY insurance, ie: co-pay, deductibles, etc…
* Because students pay tuition that includes a health fee, which supports the basic operations of SU Health Services, it will NOT be necessary for us to charge a co-pay for services.
* SU Health Services will continue to provide high quality health care to ALL students regardless of their health insurance status or ability to pay. This is the current policy and will remain in place.
* There may on occasion, be a need to refer a student for services beyond what we are able to provide, to appropriate specialists or hospitals off-campus. Students or their parents are responsible for all costs incurred outside SU Health Services, however, the SU Health Benefits Plan provides SECONDARY/ Supplemental benefits for these charges and costs. This is the current policy and will remain in place.
Health is essential to education. By promoting good health, we can remove barriers to achievement; we can foster excellence. Every visit to SU Health Services is an extension of their learning experience while at SU; we want to educate every student about important risks to health, better ways to take care of themselves, and how to be smarter and effective health care consumers. We’re looking forward to continuing to serve all SU students.
