*Health Services maintains a current referral list of local physicians. When a student sees an off campus physician, the student is responsible for securing transportation, identifying an in-network provider and paying the costs incurred. Students with chronic health challenges are encouraged to identify a specialty provider in the community to assist in monitoring their condition. The University Physician is available 20 hours per week during the academic year. This time is devoted to caring for acute illnesses and injuries and does not permit adequate time for follow-up care for chronic conditions or monitoring long-term medications such as those for type 1 diabetes, ADD, depression, or Crohns disease. Health Services is available to all students for assessment and treatment of acute illness or injury, regardless of chronic health conditions. If you need help in identifying a specialty provider in the San Antonio community, please contact our office.

Charges & Fees

Trinity University does not assess a student health fee. There is no charge for the nursing evaluation of a minor illness or injury, first aid treatment, oral over the counter medications, health counseling or medical referrals. Charges for vaccinations, other injections, laboratory testing, extensive dressings and orthopedic supplies will be at or near cost. A regularly scheduled clinic appointment with the University Physician is $20. Students who miss appointments without at least 2 hours notice will be billed $20.

Fees associated with care in Health Services may be paid with check, charged to the student's Tiger Card or billed to the student's university account.  Health Services does not accept cash or credit cards for payment.

If the physician orders prescription medication, the student is responsible for payment at the off campus pharmacy. If the student has a prescription drug card, they should be familiar with the pharmacies that honor their plan and advise Health Services at the time the prescription is being ordered. The student is responsible for presenting their insurance information to the pharmacy when they pick up their medications.

Health Services is not a participant of any HMO, PPO or private insurance plan. Therefore, we are unable to generate an insurance claim form to file with your private insurance. We can provide you with an itemized bill, but it is your responsibility to seek reimbursement from your insurance carrier. There is no guarantee that charges incurred in Health Services will be reimbursed to you by your insurance carrier. If you plan to file a claim with your insurance please make this known to the staff and we will provide a diagnosis code for your visit.  You must retain your receipt to file a claim.
