Charges & Fees

University Health Services charges $15 for basic primary care office visits at the A.P. Beutel Student Health Center. Other visit types may incur a higher charge based on the level of service, such as telemedicine, mental health, specialty visits, or other visits with complex or multiple complaints. For other services provided, discounted fees may be offered. These charges can be applied to the student’s fee account, which will then be paid to Student Business Services. All currently enrolled Texas A&M students may access no-cost counseling & mental health care visits through telemedicine options or the Student Counseling & Mental Health Care Center located on the 4th floor of the Student Services Building (SSB), mulitiple embedded locations throughout Texas A&M University main campus, and embedded locations on Texas A&M System satellite campuses.

University Health Services also accepts all major credit cards, checks (with driver’s license, state issued identification card, or passport), as well as payments from insurance plans (visit the Health Insurance page for more information).

You do not need to initiate this transfer if this is your preferred payment option.

Missed Appointment / Late Arrival / Late Cancellation Fees

Patients are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to the appointment time to complete the check-in process. If patients wish to cancel their appointment, they must do so at least two hours ahead of the appointment time so that other students have an opportunity to be seen. Students can cancel their appointment on the appointment portal or by calling Patient Services during business hours at 979. 458.8310.

  • No Show Fee: If a patient does not show for an appointment, a $25 no show fee will be applied.
  • Late Arrival: If a patient arrives late (5 minutes past the appointment time), a $25 no show fee will be applied as the original appointment could not be kept. Staff will attempt to reschedule the patient or work them into the nurse clinic, if applicable.
  • Late Cancellation Fee: If a patient cancels within 2 hours of the appointment time, a late cancellation fee of $25 will be applied.

Former Student Charges

If a former student is being asked to pay charges owed to Texas A&M University Health Services on their Texas A&M Student Account through Student Business Services (SBS), please understand that charges may have posted after the student’s graduation date. In some instances, outstanding balances may also have been transferred from the previous system to the current Compass (student information and financial) system and are now accessible. These charges should be paid to SBS. If a former student has questions regarding charges for services incurred at Texas A&M University Health Services, please contact Patient Services at 979.458.8310.
