What is covered when I pay Health Center/Counseling Center fees each year?

The fees allow the Health Center and Counseling Center to provide services to all students at low cost. The fees also provide free counseling sessions at the Counseling Center per academic year.

How much does it cost to be seen at the Health Center?

Visits are $25 for the office visit. There may be charges for labs, medications, supplies, or surgical procedures. Visits scheduled with the physician are $35.

We require payment at the time of service, or we can charge your student account, which can be paid within two weeks online or at the cashier’s window in Berndt Hall.

Fort Lewis College Student Health Center does not bill medical insurance for payment of services but is working to implement a new system for fall 2023. We will supply you with an itemized receipt which can be submitted to your medical insurance for reimbursement, or your insurance company may apply it to your deductible. If your insurance company processes your claim for payment, it will be sent directly to the policyholder.

If I'm on medication for a mental health reason, can I get my medication at the Health Center?

Most likely—our medical staff is very familiar with most medications used to treat depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues—and our pharmacy carries most of the commonly used medications.

I can't sleep—can you help me?

Our sleep habits can change for many reasons. We can discuss ways to get you the rest you need.

How do I get tested for STI's?

Schedule an appointment, we'll review your risk, do an exam if needed, and make recommendations on testing and prevention. You can always check out the Centers for Disease Control website at www.cdc.gov for more information.

Do you have Family Planning services?

Yes, we carry the most common forms of birth control, including oral contraceptives (the "Pill"), Depo-Provera (the "shot"), and IUDs. We can also recommend other forms of non-hormonal birth control. Condoms are free at the Health Center.


I plan to travel internationally. Where can I get travel immunizations and advice?

At your campus Health Center!  Simply schedule a Travel Visit with one of our Registered Nurses.  They'll get you on your way well-protected. If you'll be traveling with a class, check with your professor—he/she will likely schedule a Healthy Traveler Program session with a Nurse as guest speaker.
