New students starting at Trinity in the College of Arts and Sciences, will be assessed a $125 Health Fee for Spring 2016. This health fee allows student access to the Health and Wellness Center, which is staffed by Nurse Practitioners and a Counselor. The Health and Wellness Center will serve as your primary care provider while you are attending Trinity. Services offered include, but are not limited to: sick visits, STD screening, pregnancy tests, gynecological examinations, and physical exams. The Counselor helps students manage their stress, anxiety, depression, and a variety of other concerns. The Health Fee is mandatory, and cannot be waived.

Before you waive:
We strongly recommend that you check with your insurance provider to assure continued health insurance coverage while at Trinity, specifically for diagnostic testing (lab work and x-rays) and referrals to specialists. There have been some incidences with high-deductible plans, out-of-state Medicaid plans, and HMOs that have hindered students trying to access healthcare from local community resources. A note about HMOs: Some HMOs offer guest membership plans which provide healthcare benefits to continue at the same level when away from home. Please contact your HMO insurance provider to find out if this option is available.
