Dartmouth College Health Service (Dick's House) programs are funded primarily through tuition and the Health Access Fee which is applicable to all undergraduate, graduate and professional students, and is paid each term. Students who are not charged the Health Access Fee will be charged an established fee for each office visit and any lab or x-rays done.
Many, but not all, services at Dick's House are provided without additional cost to the student. A complete listing of billable services and the associated fee is available below. Fees are subject to change without notice.
Students who are on a leave-term or not enrolled in classes, but who are classified as active in the College Information System (Banner), may enroll into the Health Service Eligibility Program for a non-refundable fee. Students enrolled in the Health Service Eligibility Program are subject to the same fee for service schedules as full-time registered students. Visit the Patient Accounts to complete the required enrollment forms prior to making an appointment.
Dependents: Spouses and Domestic Partners who are enrolled in either the Dartmouth Student Group Health Dependent Plan or the Health Service Spouse and Domestic Partner Primary Care Program are subject to the same fee for service schedules as full-time registered students. Dependent charges will be posted to the student's tuition account if not paid at the time of the service.
Payment: Payment for billable services can be made with cash, check, credit card or posted to the student's tuition account. Charges posted to the student's tuition account do not state the service or treatment provided as that information is confidential and cannot be released without the patient's written permission.
We are unable to submit claims to insurance companies; however, upon written request of the patient, an invoice will be provided which may be submitted to his/her health plan for reimbursement -- please send a request to Dicks.House.Patient.Accounts@Dartmouth.edu.
Pharmacy Charges: For Dick's House Pharmacy and vending pharmacy questions please contact the Pharmacy directly by phone at (603) 646-9456, or by e-mail to Dicks.House.Pharmacy@Dartmouth.edu.
