Laboratory tests must be ordered by Student Health practitioner.

Insurance Coverage

Tests included in the Student Health Fee are uninalysis, complete blood count, mononucleosis, strep throat culture, cholesterol, and glucose.

      For special studies sent to our reference lab, the patient's insurance carrier is billed for this service by the reference lab. Some HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) and PPG (Preferred Provider Group) based insurance plans exclude coverage for laboratory tests not authorized or taken in conjunction with that HMO/PPG. While every effort will be made by SHS staff to coordinate your level of coverage with the need for diagnostic laboratory services, you need to be aware of your insurance coverage requirements and limitations at the time of your visit.
