Insurance & cost for care

Student spouses / partners may use Cornell Health's services, regardless of what insurance you have. 

If Cornell Health is in network with your insurance plan, we will bill and submit claims directly to your plan, and you will be responsible for remaining costs (copaymentcoinsurance, & deductibles). If we are not in network with your insurance, you will be asked to pay for Cornell Health charges at the time of care. We can provide you with a receipt so you can submit a claim to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.

Learn more on our Billing & Insurance page. 

Information for Student Health Plan (SHP) members 

Your copay for Cornell Health services will be consistent with the copay amount you pay at other participating providers ($25 for medical visits). Due to a recent change in Cornell Health’s funding model, only students who pay Cornell’s Student Health Fee will have a $10 copay for on-campus health services. 

When you receive medical care at Cornell Health, SHP will be billed as the primary payer for the cost of services received, and you will be responsible for the $25 copay paid to Cornell Health (some tests and procedures may accrue additional charges).
