HOW DO I ACCESS HEALTH SERVICES ON CAMPUS?

A graduate student may access the Boston College Health Services in two ways:

  1. Payment of Health/Infirmary Fee: This is a $434 charge for the year and allows you unlimited visits to Health Services (excludes immunizations). THIS IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH BOSTON COLLEGE STUDENT ACCIDENT AND SICKNESS INSURANCE PLAN WHICH IS A DIFFERENT FEE.

  2. Fee-for-service: Graduate students may also be seen during the academic year on a fee-for-service basis at a charge of $95 per Primary Care Center visit, $105 per Specialty visit. For cost of immunizations please contact Health Services at 617-552-3225. The fee is reasonable when compared to outside services. No care is available on campus for family members; however, a medical insurance plan is available.

All charges, including fee-for-service*, will be added to your student account, and you will be billed by the University on your Student Account Statement. Payment to the University is your responsibility.

* If you have purchased the Boston College Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan, the BC Primary Care Center's fee-for-service charge for each visit or immunizations received will be billed to your student account but it will be your responsibility to submit a claim form requesting reimbursement.  Because Health Services is considered out-of-network you will be reimbursed for 80% of the charges incurred. The $250 out-of-network deductible will be waived for visit to the BC Primary Care Health Center.
