Charges and Insurance - University of Houston
Skip to main content

The Student Health Center fee is used to subsidize the cost of your patient appointments and helps decrease the cost of other services. This great benefit allows for a significant reduction in all medical services for BOTH our uninsured and insured UH students. The visit costs are comparable to most visit copays.

Third-Party Insurance

The Student Health Center accepts commercial third-party insurance for pharmacy and eligible laboratory services. All other services are billed directly to the patient at a self-pay rate and a statement suitable for insurance claim submission is available through the Healthy Coog Patient Portal.

  • The Campus Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans for prescription coverage. Payment of co-pays, co-insurance or deductibles is required at the time services are rendered.
  • Is your third-party insurance plan in-network with Quest Diagnostics? Upon request at the time of your appointment, Quest Diagnostics will file a claim with your insurance carrier for the cost of labs that we send to their facility. Quest will bill the patient directly for any outstanding balance not covered by your insurance plan.
  • We will also work with your insurance company to refer you to specialty care, should the need arise.

The clinicians at the Student Health Center provide the care that is medically necessary for each patient; they do not provide care based on insurance coverage.

Claim submission is not a guarantee of payment. Check with your insurance company for benefits and eligibility.

Upload your insurance card to Healthy Coog Portal and provide your prescription coverage card and information to the Campus Pharmacy.

Payment Options

All payments are due at the time of service.

The Student Health Center will file a claim with the UH System endorsed Student Health Insurance Plan or transfer charges to a student's university financial account. Those without insurance will be billed at our self-pay rate.
