The Wilce Student Health Center (Student Health Services) at The Ohio State University is a Joint Commission accredited outpatient facility providing a variety of health care services to the student population. All students enrolled at OSU are eligible to use the health service, regardless of health insurance coverage.
Student Health Services provides most services on an appointment basis. However, injuries or illness that require immediate attention may be evaluated by one of our Advice Nurses and scheduled to see a physician on a same-day basis. Students may schedule an appointment in any of our Service areas by contacting the Appointment Desk on the first floor of the health center or calling 292-4321 during business hours. When you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please contact the Appointment Desk any time of day or night to cancel. This will allow us to provide another student with that appointment time. Appointments not cancelled at least two hours prior to the scheduled appointment time may result in a no show fee.
Fees are assessed for office visits, medical procedures, dental services, ancillary services, prescriptions and supplies. The Wilce Student Health Center is partially funded with student fee dollars. These fee dollars help to keep the medical services at the Student Health Center among the most affordable in the Columbus area. Questions regarding fees should be directed to the Patient Accounts Office. Usually, but not always, these charges are covered under the OSU Student Health Insurance Plan or the WilceCare Supplemental Insurance Plan. Students who are insured under one of the OSU Student Health Insurance Plans will have their claims automatically processed according to their plan benefits. Claims are submitted to other 3rd party health insurance plans. Ultimately, how your private insurance covers or does not cover services at our facility is based on the patient's individual insurance plan. Our pharmacy accepts most prescription drug programs. Cash, check, BuckID, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover/Novus are accepted for payment of co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles or non-covered services.
