Student Health Services

The Counseling and Wellness Center provides medical services including a range of primary care, referral, and educational services, for currently enrolled New College and USF Sarasota-Manatee students.

Here at New College, we have partnered with USF Health to bring you enhanced and more comprehensive medical services! Our services function just as a typical community primary care facility would with an office located at the near by University of South Florida Sarasota Manatee (USFSM) campus in the portable SMD 105 near the basketball court.Courtesy transportation is available. Here is a guide to help you understand how our services work.

  • All students can be seen for medical services at Sarasota-Manatee, in partnership with the CWC, whether insured and uninsured. If the student has insurance, USF Health will charge the insurance carrier for the services rendered. Students without insurance will not be charged for general medical video or office visits. 

  • We offer our patients the courtesy of medical services with NO co-payments charged for our USF Health services, as the student health fee covers the office visit co-pays

    • Please note that if you have insurance and you receive USF Health services, you may receive an EOB (Explanation of Benefits) in the mail. NOTE: An EOB is not a bill and so the amount billed by a provider on an EOB is not what you will have to pay.
  • If you see one of our USF Health providers and they recommend that you obtain lab work, you must check with your insurance carrier AHEAD of TIME to see which lab you can utilize so that you will not receive a bill for the lab work. 
  • Alternatively, if for your convenience, you prefer to have your lab work done in our office, we will process your labs through Quest Labs. 
  • If you use us or an outside Quest Laboratory, and you later receive a bill from Quest Lab., USF Health billing department will review any associated lab charges for you. For a medical appointment or to be transferred to billing department, call (941) 487-4254 Option 2.
  • We have an after hours nursing line for medical questions and concerns. Please call (941) 487-4254 option 2 after 5:00 PM M-F and during the weekends

During the fall and spring terms, medical services are available with a medical practitioner.  Services are not available during summer term or winter break.
