FAQ - Primary Care Health Fee


I've been charged a “health fee.” What's that?

The Primary Care Health Fee (PCHF) is designed to provide a safety net for students who are not enrolled in a medical insurance policy. Students enrolled for 6 hours or more are charged the $150 fee per semester which provides primary care services at the Cardinal Station or Health Science Center offices of Campus Health Services.

This fee IS NOT HEALTH INSURANCE and applies only at Campus Health offices.


The Primary Care Health Fee provides:

  • Unlimited medical office visits
  • Allergy injections (does not include serum)
  • Flu shots
  • Gynecological exams (does not cover outside laboratory charges)
  • In-office lab tests such as strep, pregnancy, urinalysis
  • Travel medicine consult (excludes immunizations)
  • Annual TB skin testing
