Student Health Services (SHS) does not charge students for visits with a nurse practitioner.* Physician visits (initial consultation $150, follow-up $90), laboratory tests, prescription medicines, procedures, and medical equipment provided, will incur a charge. Laboratory services will be billed directly to the student's insurance plan (College-sponsored and private) by Quest Laboratories. Student Health Services will not be held responsible for individual private insurance plan details (i.e. deductibles, co-pays, HSAs, etc.).
Please note that SHS does not bill private insurance companies for charges incurred in our clinic. Students with private insurance may visit the SHS' web portal, http://connc.studenthealthportal.com/, to view and print receipts to submit to their private insurance company for any reimbursement.
Follow these steps to print a receipt:
- Go to http://connc.studenthealthportal.com/

*Charges will be incurred if a nurse practitioner provides medication, or performs in-clinic laboratory testing or procedures during an office visit.
SHS has an estimated price list available for commonly ordered tests on site and at other facilities. SHS does not know how much a student's deductible, copay, or coinsurance cost will be. It is the student's responsibility to be familiar with their plan.
- There is no charge for any student, regardless of insurance type, to see a Nurse Practitioner at SHS.
- Appointments can be scheduled on line at any time through our portal or by calling the clinic during office hours 860-439-2275.
- If the student has private insurance they will be charged an office visit fee of $150 to see the doctor for an initial exam, $90 for follow up care.
- SHS offers some lab tests and procedures on site such as a rapid strep test or urinalysis. There is a CLIA waived lab at SHS.
- If a student has the student health insurance provided by the College, tests done at SHS are fully covered. If the student has private insurance these tests will be billed to their student bursar account. Providers will discuss cost of in-house testing with students before doing the test. SHS does not bill private insurance companies.
In-House Medication and Supplies:
- Student health insurance covers medications stocked at SHS and will be prescribed to students at no cost.
- If a student has private insurance and SHS supplies them with stock medication the student's bursar account will be charged.
- SHS can also write a prescription and give it to the student or have it sent to a local pharmacy to be filled and delivered. This will be billed directly to the student's insurance, these medications can usually be delivered the same day they are ordered.
- SHS also charges for some supplies, such as an ace bandage or an air cast. These items work the same way as in-house medications.
- Labs drawn here are sent to Quest Laboratory. These labs are not processed at SHS; these tests are billed directly to the student's health insurance by the lab. Routine lab results are usually received within 3-5 business days. X-rays and other radiology studies are usually done at either Backus hospital or Lawrence Memorial Hospital outpatient centers.
