In-House Lab Services
Student Health Services is able to provide for basic lab services on site such as: urine dipstick, urine pregnancy, monospot, and rapid strep testing at a minimal expense to students. Other lab services are provided through LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics. Services such as phlebotomy and specimen collection handling are provided by our qualified nursing staff.
Lab specimens are sent to LabCorp or Quest Diagnostic Labs for evaluation and are billed by LabCorp or Quest to a student's health insurance. The Student Health Insurance Plan generally covers 90% of most lab fees and students are responsible for the remaining balance. The Student Health Insurance Plan will cover 90% of one routine STI screening annually (Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, HIV).
Health insurance plans vary widely. Some non-college health insurance plans will not cover lab fees for Labcorp or Quest which may be "out of network". Please be aware of your individual insurance coverage policies and how they would pertain to services "out of plan" or "out of state". Students should call their health insurance provider prior to getting routine or non-emergent lab tests done to check for eligibility.
