Undergraduate and law students are eligible for Health Center office visits at no extra charge. Graduate and IEP students pay on a fee for service basis at the Health Center. The charge for a physician visit ranges from $45 to $65, depending on the length of the visit and the type of services provided. Charges for medicines dispensed, allergy injections, immunizations, laboratory tests, x-ray examinations, and miscellaneous items are billed to ALL STUDENTS.
The University believes it is the responsibility of each student to have health insurance and therefore expects students will have it for the entire time they are enrolled. Having health insurance protects both the student and the community. International students are required to provide evidence that they have health insurance that will cover them the entire time they are a student at the University of Dayton. The University is not responsible for covering health care costs. All charges incurred at the Student Health Center are reported to UD's Office of Student Accounts. Inquiries regarding bills should be made at the Health Center between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. weekdays. Itemized statements can be provided upon patient request, but these are not automatic and the Health Center does not bill outside insurance companies directly. However, students should bring a copy of their health insurance/pharmacy cards to each visit.
