We put a strong emphasis on health education, helping students learn how to manage or avoid health problems in the future. Every student who comes in to the Student Wellness Services--Medical is screened for physical and mental health, so we are able to provide specific feedback to students regarding health risk. Services are available for all students who have paid the Student Wellness Services fee.
Services provided by Medical Services includes but is not limited to:
- Acute Care
- Sexual & Reproductive Health
- Wellness & Prevention Visits
- Travel Consults & Immunizations
- Medication & Herbal Consults
- Care Coordination & Community Referrals
- Health Education
Cost & Insurance
Laboratory and medication changes are always discussed with you prior to initiating the test; you have the right to refuse. Limited medications prescribed from the on-site dispensary usually range from $10-$20, for many common prescriptions such as antibiotics. Additional medication options may require a prescription to be filled at a pharmacy, possibly using health insurance. Any laboratory charges are billed to the student.
You do not need insurance to utilize SWS, as we do not bill insurance companies directly. If there is any additional fee (for lab tests or medications), student accounts are billed as a Health Service fee. Student receive a copy of the superbill which can be used to make a claim for reimbursement with your insurance providers. Students who do not want/cannot access insurance may pay their bill with Student Accounts over the course of the quarter. For students seeking insurance, they may work with our CHOICES Navigator or Student Assistance Coordinator to work through Washington Health Benefit Exchange.
For services outside of the scope of care of Student Wellness Services, we will work with you to make choices that will work with your financial and insurance situation regarding referrals and resources.
Evergreen Immunization Requirement
Evergreen has implemented a policy regarding proof of Measles (Rubeoia) immunity for all students. All students must provide a copy of their medical or immunization record showing two doses of Measles (Rubeola) vaccine (usually referred to as the "MMR vaccine"). The doses must have been given at least 30 days apart, and on or after 12 months of age. The Immunization Form (PDF) can be filleed out and returned to SWS or Registration and Records prior to the beginning of Fall Quarter. In the event religious, personal, or medical reasons prevent you from vaccination, you may sign the waiver included on the Immunization Form (PDF). If you have signed the waiver and a measles outbreak occurs, you will be asked to leave campus for a minimum of 2 weeks resulting in possible missed classes, coursework, and compensation from work.
Limited vaccines are available at Student Wellness Services. We provide recommendations to local resources for those we do not carry.
