Health Service Fees

" 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 or Wellness programs.

Payment of Fees

If you have no fees or want the fees billed to your university bill, or you do not need a receipt, you can use EXPRESS CHECKOUT and promptly exit the Health Center after your appointment. Those who need a receipt, even if they desire the charges to be billed to their University account, or want to pay by cash, check, or purple points, must check out at the front window before leaving the Health Center. EXCEPTION: Massage therapy is $10-45 payable by cash or check directly to the massage therapist at the time of the massage.


If requested, a prescription can also be given to take to a local pharmacy. This is often done when a student has insurance coverage for medication. In addition, there are some sample medications available. The  Wisconsin Family Planning Waiver program provides no charge reproductive health care and contraceptives for eligible students.

Summer Fee

If you graduate in May, you can receive health services for no additional fee until the first Monday in June. To continue services until August 1, there is a one time fee that changes yearly. If you are enrolled in the spring and for the fall, but not the summer, you can receive health services for no additional fee until the first Monday in June. To continue services from the first Monday in June through August 1, the one time fee applies. After August 1, full services are available without the additional one time time fee.If you are enrolled in summer session, you can receive health services for no additional fee until the first day of fall classes.

No-Show Fee

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, late cancellations or no-show appointments may result in a fee.
