Routine laboratory and immunizations are covered by the student insurance plan.
Students are recommended to review the terms of the student insurance plan to determine costs and coverage for consultation referrals (e.g., cardiologist), diagnostic tests (e.g., such as x-ray or MRI) and prescriptions. Students are responsible to call the student health insurance company at 800-505-4160 regarding the plan's coverage benefits including preferred vs. out-of network, co-insurance, co-pays, deductibles, limitations and exclusions, etc.
REGISTERED STUDENTS who have NOT ENROLLED or WAIVED the student insurance plan
However, having not enrolled or waived the student insurance, they are personally responsible for laboratory testing (sent to an outside laboratory testing facility) fees and the costs of immunizations. Most routine and STD testings are low cost (approximate: cholesterol $4.76, HIV antibody $5.62, strep culture $7.62).
Rutgers University-Newark Health services and its staff do not participate in any insurance policies. Students need to call their private health insurance regarding reimbursements of these costs. For outside consultation referrals, diagnostic laboratory testing and x-rays, and prescriptions, students are responsible to contact their private health insurance regarding coverage benefits (e.g., in/out of network, pre-approval from PCP, co-insurance, co-pays, deductible, limitations and exclusions, etc.).
