...

Will there be a cost?
There is no cost for evaluations by clinicians at Suffolk’s Office of Health & Wellness Services (however insurance is billed for diagnostic testing, for example: blood tests). MGH Medical Walk-In Unit visits for initial care and evaluation, including some point of care testing (i.e. rapid strep testing, rapid flu testing, etc.), are covered under Suffolk’s agreement with MGH.  However students may incur additional costs for certain medical tests or referrals and should always bring their insurance card with them when accessing care.  If you visit the MGH Medical Walk-in Unit during hours other than Monday - Friday from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and on weekends and holidays from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm, or if you are not able to show your Suffolk ID card, your insurance will be charged for services rendered and you may need to pay a copay.

For Employees:

Faculty and Staff are encouraged to seek medical treatment through their primary care provider when its not an immediate emergency. The Office of Counseling, Health & Wellness DOES NOT provide medical care to faculty and staff. When the event is over and you able to do so notify your supervisor if the event occurred on campus.
