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 1-888-308-7320). Students without insurance should discuss their situation with clinic personnel.
- Students without insurance: The ASU Health Clinic has an industrial account agreement with an area health care provider to provide lab services at a reduced price scale. We are able to do this by guaranteeing payment for the ordered medical service(s). Health Services will then bill that payment back to the student to recoup the cost of the referred lab. A hold will be placed on the student’s transcript and ability to register for future classes while outstanding bills remain unpaid.
- Students with insurance may find it is less expensive to pursue labs through their own insurance rather than use the clinic’s referral arrangements (as described above). Call your insurance provider to be sure and then let clinic staff know which option is best for you (i.e., whether it is cheaper to go with your insurance or to use our industrial account arrangements). This last step is vital to you as we need to mark your referral form with the correct payment option before sending you onto your referred service(s).
- 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.
