INSURANCE & BILLING
Policies have been implemented regarding insurance & billing and CHS will now bill your insurance. In doing this, we are able to provide more primary care for our students.
Office visits will now be submitted to your insurance. The clinic works to provide medical services to students at little to no cost, but students will be solely responsible, however, for any prescription co-pays. The clinic staff works to prescribe any necessary medications of the highest and most effective quality, but of the lowest possible price. If pricing concerns occur, we will do our best to work with the student in prescribing new therapy in a reachable price range. All students will be seen, regardless of ability to pay. Please call the clinic at 783-2055 if you have further questions or to make appointments.

Drug Drop Box Available
MSU Counseling and Health Services and MSU Police Department
is partnering with Cardinal Health Foundation to help raise awareness in our
community about the growing public health issue of prescription drug abuse and
misuse. Grant funding has been used to
establish a permanent controlled substance (narcotic) drug drop box in our MSU
campus police department. This system
will provide our campus community with an appropriate means of disposal of
unused controlled substance medications.
The box is available to students, faculty and staff on a year around
basis. No questions asked with disposal
of medications. Please remove label or
black out names on any prescription bottles.
