Billing and Payment Policy
All visits to the UAlbany Health Center are free of charge to registered UAlbany students.
The only costs a UAlbany student may incur at the Health Center are for:
- In-house lab tests (mono tests, rapid strep tests, pregnancy tests, rapid HIV), $10 each
- Lab tests sent to an outside lab are charged directly by the referring (outside) lab to the student or their insurance.
- Durable Medical Goods (crutches, splints) $2-$35 depending on equipment dispensed
- Co-Pays on contraceptives
- Co-Pays on allergy medications
- Over the Counter Medication costs
- Medication costs in the unusual event the $100/semester Cap is exceeded
Health Center charges are billed through E-bill. E-bills are generated by Student Accounts on or about the 20th of each month and payment is due the 15th of the following month.
Pay by the due date to avoid late fees and holds. You must pay your entire bill or select to pay the Health Center specific charges through E-pay or personally pay the Health Center amount at the Bursar counter in the Student Financial Center (518-442-3220) with clear instructions to apply it directly to the Health Center portion of your bill in order to avoid a Health Center Medical-Fiscal hold on your account.
Students with unpaid Health Center obligations will have a Medical/Fiscal "hold" placed on their records and will be unable to use the Health Center pharmacy, receive transcripts, register for future terms, or receive diplomas until the full Health Center balance is paid. To have this hold removed, you must pay your entire bill or personally pay the Health Center amount at the Bursar counter in the Student Financial Center (518-442-3220) with clear instructions to apply it directly to the Health Center portion of your bill, failure to do so may delay lifting of the hold. If you have an outstanding balance anywhere on campus that is older than the Health Center bill, your payment will go toward the oldest outstanding balance first. Therefore, you may still end up with a Health Center hold for non payment until all your balances are brought to current. Once Health Center charges are paid, an automated overnight process will remove the hold.
If there are questions regarding the charge on your Health Center bill please contact the Health Center at (518) 956-8400.
