Cost of Services
Our goal is to provide services to all students regardless of insurance status. Services are provided at low or no cost to families whether or not a student has insurance. Insurance is billed whenever possible to help cover the cost of care. We may send a bill for mental health service co-pays if a student has private insurance.

Clinic Consent
Students must have a signed parent/guardian consent form on file to receive most clinic services. According to Minnesota State Law, parental consent is required for all students under 18 years old to receive healthcare services. Exceptions include pregnancy and contraceptive services, chemical assessment and counseling, and diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. A separate consent is required for mental health services.
