Most services at SHS are provided at no additional cost to the student beyond an annual health services fee charged by Weill Cornell Medical College and Graduate School of Medical Sciences. Any service requested and provided outside of the SHS (examples include but are not limited to physician consultation, the processing of a laboratory specimen or an imaging referral, physical therapy and others) will be billed to the patient’s health insurance plan directly by the rendering provider. As a service to patients, SHS collects and shares insurance information with our laboratory and pathologists for specimens originating in the Student Health center. Students are ultimately responsible for all financial aspects of their care, regardless of insurance coverage. Any disputes regarding payment are between the student, their insurance company and the rendering provider, not SHS.
Students are advised to learn the details of their health insurance, as SHS does not verify coverage nor submits bills/claims.
