Laboratory Services

Emory University Student Health Services (EUSHS) has limited on-site laboratory services (CLIA-waived testing) including urinalysis, rapid strept testing, rapid mononucleosis testing, rapid influenza testing, urine pregnancy testing, stool occult blood testing and others. All on-site lab tests are offered on a fee-for-service basis.

We also send-out laboratory testing to Emory Medical Laboratories on a fee-for-service basis. Billing for these tests is done by EUSHS. We prefer payment at the time of service and accept cash, checks, EmoryCard, Visa and MasterCard. EUSHS also participates in the Emory/Aetna student health insurance plan and in a number of other major insurance PPOs, including Aetna, Cigna, Humana, Beech Street, Kaiser, and United Healthcare. For a list of our current managed care contracts, click here. We do not participate in Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare and unfortunately, at this time, we have been unable to persuade Blue Cross/Blue Shield to contract with us. We are non-participants in other plans that are not listed. However, we will file for any charges incurred at EUSHS with the patient's primary insurance carrier. If we are non-participants, it is possible that your carrier may not pay for these charges. We will also provide our patients with copies of all relevant paperwork needed to resolve any payment issues with the insurance carrier. We will wait an appropriate time period from the date of filing the claim to receive payment. If the charges are unpaid at that time, we will transfer the balance to Student Financial Services for billing on the student's account.

EUSHS does not draw/collect laboratory tests for outside or non-EUSHS physicians whose offices are located in the metro Atlanta area, including physicians in The Emory Clinic. We strongly believe that the ordering physician should order his/her own laboratory tests on his/her patient and be responsible for the results, whether normal or abnormal. However, we will draw/collect laboratory tests for physicians outside metro Atlanta as a courtesy to our students, since those students would be unable to go to a local physician's office to have the blood drawn.
