WKUHS Clinical Services

Health Services offers comprehensive medical services to students, faculty, staff and all members of the WKU community. University staff and faculty (and their dependents) are eligible to use Health Services. Patients will be asked to provide primary health insurance coverage at the time of services. Health Services uses a fee-for-service schedule so charges are billed to your primary insurance plan as a courtesy; patients are responsible for any remaining balance.

**Health Services currently is unable to accept Medicare or Medicaid or any State Medicaid Insurance Plan.**
