"I was very thankful this exists. I do not have insurance so it helps to be able to have a place to go where many things are free and what's not is cheaper. The healthcare providers are all very nice and willing to help." UW-W student
There are no fees for Counseling, Employee Assistance or Wellness programs.
Health Services Fees:
UHCS respects our students’ time and money. We strive to give UWW students the best health care services possible for the segregated fees they pay. When all appointments made are used, we are able to make more appointments available to our students. When students do not keep their appointments, other students who want an appointment have to wait needlessly. When appointments are made and not kept students’ segregated fee dollars are wasted.
To maximize the timely services and lowest cost to the students, UHCS will charge those students who make health appointments and do not use them a wasted appointment fee of $10 starting September 1, 2011. The fee of $10 will automatically be applied to the student’s university bill.
If students cancel or change their health appointment later than noon the day
prior to their appointment, they will be charged a $5 cancellation fee. The
fee of $5 will automatically be applied to the student’s university bill.
While these amounts will not compensate for the lost professional staff time,
the purpose of this policy is to discourage lost appointment time for our students
and keep student fees for high quality health care as low possible.
