Frequently Asked Questions

Nurse: No cost.

Nurse Practitioner: Depends on the level of care needed; the range is $25 to $75 per visit.

If you do not have insurance, we will work with you by making a payment plan. We will not turn anyone away from getting care if they cannot afford it. There is always a way!

Costs at the Wildcat Health Clinic are definitely lower than an ordinary doctor's office! We have options to assist that most offices do not. Also, our charges are generally considerably lower. We try very hard to keep prices as low as possible while continuing to provide quality care.

The Wildcat Health Clinic has a variety of over-the-counter medications given free of charge, including but not limited to generic Tylenol, Ibuprofen, cold medications, various stomach medications, etc..

We also have items for wound care, sprains and strains, etc. We offer crutches and nebulizers (for breathing treatments) on loan, as long as the student needs.

The Wildcat Health Clinic is not a dispensing pharmacy, meaning that someone cannot bring a prescription from their own health care provider to be filled here at the clinic.

What if I'm prescribed a medication?

We do have a number of generic medications we dispense if ordered by the Nurse Practitioner at an equal, or lower cost than a regular pharmacy would charge. For any medications not available at the Wildcat Health Clinic, many local pharmacies are nearby campus.

Flu shots are offered beginning in the Fall and continue until we run out of vaccines.

The cost varies year-to-year, but usually runs ~$25 per dose.

Usually, the nurse will see a patient first and assess the patient to determine what level of care is needed. If needed, the nurse will refer the patient to the Nurse Practioner (N.P.)

The nurses can provide over-the-counter medications, provide self-help care information, perform rapid strep, flu, and mono tests, chem strips for urinalyses, blood sugar screenings, and urine drug screens (all of the tests incur a charge).

Any patient can also request to see the N.P.

No, you do not have to show proof of insurance to be a student at Indiana Wesleyan University.

However, it is strongly encouraged for each student to be covered by a health insurance policy.
