Services provided include, but are not limited to, acute and chronic conditions, physicals, female exams and issues, laboratory testing, suture removal, and allergy injections.

- What does it cost to be seen by the nurse practitioner or physician in Student Health Services?
If the student has WSU Student Health Insurance and is sick or injured, there is NO cost (in most cases) for the student to be seen by a provider (MD or nurse practitioner). WSU Student Health Insurance is currently paying for one female exam per year. Students covered by their parents' insurance must pay $50 for the provider visit at the time of the visit. The student will be given a fee statement that may be submitted to the parent's insurance company for possible reimbursement. Parents should consult with their insurance companies to determine if WSU Student Health Services will be covered if the student is seen in the health service. Other costs may be incurred during the visit including lab work, injections, and/or immunizations. A current list of prices is available at the health center.
- How can I pay for my bill at the Student Health Services?
Students may pay by check, cash, credit card, or applying their bill to their Bursar account.
- Do I have to make an appointment?
Students wishing to see the physician must make an appointment. Appointments are also required for allergy shots and wellness visits with the nurse practitioner such as female exams, contraception, or physicals. We accept students on a walk-in basis for acute illnesses. Usually there are open appointments available. If you want to be sure to be seen at a specific time, please call and make an appointment to see the nurse practitioner. An appointment is never required to see the RN or for immunizations or TB testing.
Health Care and Student Insurance
When you register for classes, those students with 6.0 credit hours or more will have the option to accept or decline student health insurance. This charge will be included in your Bursar bill. There is a two week window when the semester begins to add or drop insurance coverage.
Students living in Hamilton Hall, The Woods, Honors Community, or the university apartments are required to purchase this coverage or confirm existence of an equivalent coverage.
All international students and dependents are required to purchase WSU health insurance. UCIE can make an exception for students who receive insurance covering them as a dependent through a US employer with the purchase of a supplemental plan covering repatriation and medical evacuation.
Student Health Services
In addition to functioning as caregivers and administrators of treatment, the Student Health Services’ staff strive to be educators and promote wellness. This positive approach to living emphasizes the total person; social, occupational, spiritual, physical, intellectual, and emotional.
