Fees & Access

The Student Health and Wellness Fee supports the operations of Campus Health, which offers Tulane Students comprehensive medical, mental health, and health promotion services through The Health Center for Student Care, CAPS for Counseling Services, and The Well for Health Promotion. 

Co-Pays at The Health Center

All visits at The Health Center will require the collection of co-pays, co-insurances, or deductibles at the time of visit. The Health Center will accept credit card payment or can bill your charges to Accounts Receivable.  All unpaid charges will be automatically transmitted to Accounts Receivable. Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, Campus Health will bill third-party insurance. Review the Financial Policy & Student Responsibility details.
