Billing and Insurance
Per the Blood Borne Pathogen Student Waiver, the student assumes financial responsibility for all costs associated with post-exposure medical management and treatment. The NMHC accepts the student accident and sickness insurance plan (Multiplan) and most third-party medical insurance plans – Highmark/DE, Aetna, Cigna, Medicare, Medicaid (DPCI, UHC-Community Plan). If the student is not able to provide health insurance information or payment at time of service, the student will be billed. The NMHC will assist the student with health insurance reimbursement process as needed, or with navigating mechanisms for payment of services.
