Consultations by the medical staff at the HCC are free for enrolled students regardless of insurance coverage. Prescriptions, lab work, in-house lab testing, immunizations, and some other procedures will require a fee.

When you need care beyond what HCC offers, the costs incurred by seeking treatment elsewhere will depend upon your insurance coverage. Reed offers insurance for its students, which covers primary and specialty care off campus. We recommend that the Reed Health and Counseling Center refer you to any specialty care services. If you are covered under a parent's insurance, it is a requirement of Reed's that your coverage is comparable to Reed insurance. Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), in particular, may have restrictions about where and by whom you can be treated. If you need consultation with an off-campus specialist (i.e. x-rays, specialist visits, etc.), the HCC can assist with an appropriate referral.
