There are times when a student may need to be referred to the ER, to their primary care provider, or to a specialist. These visits will incur fees that the student must bear. Students must also bear expenses associated with lab work/testing, x-rays, prescription drugs, referrals, and other off-campus care. We encourage students to purchase health insurance to cover these additional costs (please see Academic HealthPlans or call 1-855-850-4299). Students without insurance should discuss their situation with clinic personnel.
- Students with insurance should contact their insurance provider to be sure of coverages and make informed decisions regarding their health care and its costs. Students without insurance are encouraged to explore Option #3 below (La Ezperanza Health Services) and communicate with the Shannon Clinic staff about their financial need (to ask about possible payment options).
- Students with military health benefits/insurance may be referred directly to free health services on base at GAFB. Please let us know if this is an option. For help with military health insurance, contact the TRICARE Service Center at 325-654-3086.
Students may also pursue health care outside of the clinic through La Esperanza Health and Dental Centers. La Esperanza clinics provide health services based on a sliding scale (your financial state) and their services may be more affordable than other options.
