Faculty & Staff Acute Care Clinic

In an effort to expand services to the campus community, Bryant Student Health Center (BSHC) will begin to provide limited daily appointments for medical services to faculty and staff.

The BSHC will bill your visit to your health insurance plan. Your insurance will be sent with your outside laboratory tests or you can opt to pay the student pricing for the labs at the time of service. If your labs are billed to your insurance by an outside lab, you will owe that lab for your copay/deductible as indicated by your insurance company. An outside script will be provided for you for prescriptions or you may pay student pricing for prescriptions or OTC meds that we carry in our pharmacy. You will be responsible to pay the portion you owe based on how your insurance processes your claim. Cash, check, credit/debit card, and HSA card payments are accepted. 

For more information call the BSHC at 620.235.4452.
