Payment is required at the time of the visit.
- Please note that while payment is required at time of visit, if a student is absolutely unable to pay at the time of their visit, payment may be deferred for up to 30 days.

We maintain a small dispensary onsite for commonly used medications and contraceptives for which there is a charge.
Only contraceptives are free with the Aetna Student Health Insurance. For all other medications there is a charge, regardless of insurance.
All vaccines offered at Primary Care are free to students with the Aetna Student Health Insurance.
Students with outside insurance will be asked to pay for their vaccines at the time of their visit and will be given paperwork to submit a claim for reimbursement. Check with your outside insurance provider to make sure you will be reimbursed before paying upfront for vaccines.
All in-house laboratory testing is performed by LabCorp.
If you have outside insurance, please be aware of the in-network lab services covered by your insurance.
The PCHS does not bill insurance directly for labs. LabCorp will bill the insurance.
Current students may receive a copy of their medical records at no charge.
There is a charge of seventy five cents per page for non current students.
For more information please see our Medical Records page.
There is a $25 no show fee for all missed appointments. For most appointments, if you are more than 10 minutes late it counts as a no show and your appointment will likely need to be rescheduled.
Special notice about Nutrition Appointments:
All nutrition appointments must be cancelled or rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance via phone during business hours. If your appointment is on a Monday, you must cancel by 4PM the Friday before the appointment.
