As of fall 2010, when you enroll at Temple University, you pay a University Services Fee each semester. This fee entitles you to use the services of Student Health Services.
The fee covers most of your routine and acute care visits. There are additional charges for administrative physical exams (such as those for work or driver’s licenses), lab tests, medications, certain procedures and supplies.
There are also charges for gynecology services that are not part of the Title X Family Planning Program.
The University Services Fee is not health insurance. Health insurance covers you for many of the services we do not provide. For example, if you need to go to the emergency room or see a specialist, you would need health insurance. Some insurance plans also have prescription coverage, which covers a portion of your medication costs.
For more information on the University Services Fee, please visit the Bursar’s Office.
