Eligibility | Costs | Billing

There is no additional charge for most UHS services including: medical and mental health counseling appointments, radiology,
laboratory tests, victim advocacy, and flu shots. Our services are confidential.

Student eligibility

All UW–Madison students who are enrolled for credit during a fall, spring, or summer semester and pay segregated fees are eligible to use all UHS services during that academic term.

Guest students are not eligible to use UHS because they are not enrolled for credit and do not pay segregated fees.

Confidential victim advocacy services are available during the summer term for students who plan to return to UW–Madison during the next fall semester, regardless if the UHS summer fee is paid.

Non-students

UHS also provides or coordinates certain services for non-students in the following categories:

  • UW–Madison employees may receive seasonal influenza vaccinations at clinics around campus in the fall through Occupational Medicine. Proof of insurance must be provided.
  • SHIP International Scholars and SHIP spouses/partners should use UHS as described in the terms of the UW–Madison Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
  • Non-students participating in couple/partner counseling with an eligible UW–Madison student.

Mental Health Services

Due to professional licensure requirements, Mental Health Services is not able to provide counseling treatment to students who are physically outside of the state of Wisconsin. Read our informed participation agreement as well as informed consent for telemental health.

Costs

There are charges for some UHS services including most immunizations (except free flu shots), physical therapy appointments, orthopedic equipment such as splints and braces, and third-party physicals, and certain lab work and tests connected with those physicals. UHS will bill students if payment is not made at time of service.

Short term loans may be sought by students when an unexpected life event or circumstance takes place that causes financial hardship.

SHIP members: Many immunizations and other services listed below may be fully covered for SHIP members and spouses/partners under the Student Health Insurance Plan.

Prescription medications

Students are responsible for charges for prescription medications at the pharmacy of their choice.

Referrals

When students require advanced diagnostic tests, certain types of mental health treatment, or other specialty care, UHS will referral to an appropriate provider in the community. Students are responsible for all charges for such specialty care, which may qualify for full or partial coverage or reimbursement under their health insurance plans. Students are responsible for contacting their insurance carriers to determine which providers may be covered under their plans.

UW Health and UW Hospital & Clinics

University Health Services is not part of UW Health and does not have any special referral relationship with UW Hospital and Clinics. Students who are referred or transported to any hospital from our clinic, including UW Hospital, are responsible for any emergency room or hospitalization charges.

If payment is not received within 60 days, a hold will be put on your student records, and you will be unable to register for classes or receive transcripts until the bill is paid. The hold will be removed after we receive your payment.

Health insurance reimbursement

UHS is out-of-network for all health insurance plans except the UW-Madison Student Health Insurance Plan. UHS does not bill insurance, verify insurance coverage, or accept assignment of insurance benefits from insurance plans.

Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to receive full or partial reimbursement for payments you have made to UHS by submitting a copy of your UHS Statement of Service to your insurance company. You are responsible for contacting your insurance carrier to determine whether UHS services are eligible for full or partial reimbursement under your plan. If you intend to seek reimbursement, we recommend you contact your insurance provider before you receive the service at UHS to ask if it will be covered.
