The Health & Wellness Center does not directly bill, nor receive payment from any insurance company. Most Health & Wellness Center services including office visits are provided at no charge. For services that do have an associated charge, students may submit a claim to their health insurance company for reimbursement. Supporting documentation that may be required by insurance including receipts, and encounter summaries are available on the Student Health Portal. Lehigh University requires that most undergraduate and graduate students be covered by adequate medical insurance or enroll in the university-sponsored plan.
Lehigh's sponsored health insurance is a student centered Cign PPO plan called Wellfleet. It is not required for students to enroll in Wellfleet's plan but it is strongly encouraged, especially for international and out-of-state students whose home insurance may not be adequate in Pennsylvania. The Health & Wellness Center recommends students check with their individual health insurance regarding coverage benefits and necessity for referrals. Families may wish to supplement their student's insurance with the university sponsored plan.
