|About the Student Health Fee and the University Health Center|
Every term in which you are enrolled, you are charged a student health fee as part of your "mandatory fees." This fee entitles you to access to the University Health Center, which provides a host of comprehensive services at low cost. These include:
Eligibility. All students who register for classes and are charged mandatory fees are eligible for services. Students who are not registered for classes in a given term are not eligible unless they pay a “stop-out” fee. Call the Health Center for details. Also not eligible are dependents and partners of students, students enrolled only in Community Education or self-support courses, faculty and staff.
Cost. Most services at the University Health Center are much less expensive than at a private health provider. The standard charge for an appointment with a physician, dentist or nurse practitioner is only $15. Some other services may be more expensive than $15, while others are available at no charge. If you have any questions about charges please be sure to ask your health care provider.
Paying for Services. Students may pay for services with cash, by check, or by asking to have the costs charged to their UO student account. Your student account can be billed for office visit costs and all lab tests, x-rays, medications, shots, physical therapy, sports medicine, and special procedures. When your student account is charged, it is like any other university expense such as tuition, fees, library fines or parking permits. You can view your student account at anytime on Duckweb.The Health Center does not accept debit or credit cards.
Billing Insurance Companies. Currently the Health Center does not bill insurance companies. However, upon request, we can provide you with an itemized insurance billing statement that you can send to your insurance company to reimburse you for services you received at the University Health Center.
