Most visits to Student Health Services (SHS) are free. There is a cost associated with vaccinations, some supplies (crutches, air casts), emergency contraception, office rapid lab tests & TB skin tests. When laboratory testing is ordered by a SHS doctor or nurse practitioner, you have the option of having your blood drawn in the office by a registered nurse, and sent to either Quest Diagnostics or Lab Corp depending on which of these laboratories is in your insurance network. The laboratory will send the bill to your home address. You can then provide the laboratory with the details of your insurance billing information. We are not responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses that you incur due to non-coverage or co-insurance expenses (deductibles, co-pays, etc). We can order prescription medicine for you electronically to the pharmacy of your choice, or to Quick Chek Pharmacy on Pennington Road who provide same-day delivery to SHS at the end of the day. Please make sure that you bring your prescription card with you so that we can fax the front & back of your prescription card to the Pharmacy. You can then pick it up from our office or at the pharmacy of your choice. Prescription medicine typically is not fully covered by insurance; co-pays may apply and are due when you pick up your prescription. If picking up your prescription in Student Health Services, please note that we can ONLY accept major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover), and the TCNJ GetIt card as payment for your prescription co-pays.
The 2013-14 student health insurance company has an agreement with Student Health Services (does not include Planned Parenthood) to cover 100% of those charges (no deductible) incurred during an office visit by students who are enrolled in the 2013-14 student health insurance plan. Our office will submit the bill for you to the student health insurance company. This does NOT include any services provided by a facility external to SHS such as a laboratory or pharmacy. A list of Student Health Services’ charges are listed below. Please note that co-pays do apply to prescriptions now under the 2013-14 student health insurance plan.
We have no agreement with any other insurance company. Students who have insurance other than student health insurance, or no insurance, are expected to pay for any chargeable services received at the time of their Student Health Services’ office visit. We accept cash, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
