Fees and Charges

Services usually rendered by a school nurse, including provision of over the counter medications, will be free of charge.

The Student Health Center is able to bill insurance for outpatient visits with Dr. Dekat. Students will be responsible at the time of the visit for the co-pay as determined by their insurance, which can be paid with cash, check, or charged to the University student account. The copay is reduced for students who have the Aetna Student Health insurance.  Read more about the service.

Thus, it is very important that students ensure that their insurance will cover medical care in Texas and that all students have a copy of their insurance card when they come to the clinic.

In addition to the copay for the visit, there may be additional fees for medications ordered by Dr. Dekat and filled in the clinic pharmacy.
